After speaking with Mr. Quinlan, IPED visited the New York Society of Security Analysts (NYSSA), one of many societies around the world that comprise the CFA Institute. Once there, the students were greeted by Mario Carias, who serves on the Board of Directors. The students were educated in what NYSSA does, how to become a certified charted financial analyst (CFA), and ways to become involved with NYSSA.
