The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA), organized in 1919, is the oldest international organization devoted to investor protection. NASAA is a voluntary association with a membership consisting of securities administrators in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada, and Mexico. As the preeminent organization of securities regulators, NASAA is committed to protecting investors from fraud and abuse, educating investors, supporting capital formation, and helping ensure the integrity and efficiency of financial markets. NASAA represents and serves its members through advocacy, education, subject matter expertise, communication, and coordination. NASAA members license firms and their agents, investigate violations of state and provincial law, file enforcement actions when appropriate, and educate the public about investment fraud. NASAA has a long history of advocating for federal and state legislation, rule making, and coordinated enforcement actions that advance the goal of protecting investors. For more information, visit
