LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
This edition of Technically Speaking consists almost entirely of ideas discussed in Seattle at the recent MTA Regional Seminar. I did not attend the Seminar hoping to find these ideas but all MTA events result in a large number of ideas for me. The speakers are always thought-provoking and discussions with participants who travel to the events are equally inspiring. In the end, I always find more ideas than I have time to test or write about.
Meetings of the MTA have been serving this purpose for years. As the number of members increased, the MTA adopted technology to bring the benefits of meetings to members around the world. Blogs and discussions forums on the MTA web site are offering me an increasing number of trading ideas and increasing networking opportunities.
The MTA will certainly keep improving the opportunities for members to interact, but there is no way anyone can improve the quality of the interactions among market professionals that have defined the organization for nearly 40 years.
I encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to gain insight, discover new techniques and celebrate with the global technical community at the 2013 MTA Annual Symposium in New York on April 4 &5, 2013. For complete information please visit https://symposium.mta.org.
