The impact of September 11’s terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on the Securities Industry in New York City, will be added to the focus of the 8th Annual Securities Industry Conference to be held Thursday, October 18th.

The conference, conducted by Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and the William Freund Center for the Study of Securities Markets, will feature participants who are among the leaders in the securities industry, including New York Stock Exchange President William R. Johnson and Nasdaq CEO and President Robert Glauber (who will present the keynote addresses); A.D. Frazier, president of the Chicago Stock Exchange and Peter Quick, President of the American Stock Exchange.

The overall theme of the conference is, Will The Securities Industry Meet Its ACID Test?
The acronym “ACID” stands for automation, consolidation, internationalization and diversification. Much of the discussion will focus on panelists and speakers exploring future trends and how best to profit from them.

“While our theme has remained the same, in light of the fact that this is the first conference since the attacks, speakers will also discuss their views on the future of the Securities Industry in New York City,” said William C. Freund, director of the Freund Center.

The conference will be held at the Pace University Michael Schimmel Center for the Arts,1 Pace Plaza (entrance on Spruce Street), New York, NY. Registration and Continental breakfast start at 8:00 AM and the program begins at 8:20 AM and ends at 4:30 PM.

Pace University will honor survivors of the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks through the creation of a fund that will supplement tuition support from Governor George Pataki’s proposed World Trade Center Memorial Scholarship fund.

“Whatever the level of the prevailing CUNY and SUNY tuition support is, Pace will make up the difference and provide a four-year full tuition supplement for up to seventy five individuals. Thus attending Pace University will be tuition free to any recipient of the Pace Remembers Memorial Fund,” said Pace President David A. Caputo.

The scholarship is available to spouses and children of the September 11th terrorist attacks.

Pace has also established an endowment for additional scholarship support and has made an initial contribution to the fund. All proceeds will provide financial aid and assistance for any spouse or child of a victim of the attacks. In addition, a percentage of the gifts received by the University to the Annual Giving Program from alumni and friends will be designated in support of the endowed scholarship fund.

A fund for current Pace University students affected by the attacks has been created to help meet specific needs of those students who were displaced, suffered a loss in employment or lost a family member. Grants up to $1,000 are available. Pace has provided an initial contribution to the fund, and contributions may be sent to: Office of University Advancement; Pace University, One Pace Plaza; New York, NY 10038; Telephone, 212-346-1276. Checks should be made to Pace University.

A permanent memorial site will also be established at One Pace Plaza, in recognition of members of the Pace community who lost their lives in the attacks. The memorial will be completed within the next year.

Pace University has made financial contributions of $25,000 each to three major funds: New York Police & Fire Widows and Children’s Benefit Fund, United Way – 9/11 Fund, and the American Red Cross.

After the service audience members and participants will form a “ring of light” around One Pace Plaza in a candle lighting ceremony. A reception will follow.

The One Pace Plaza location was initially used as a triage location during the first week after the terrorist attacks. Although the building itself was undamaged, telephone, Internet and other infrastructure facilities were disrupted. Classes resumed at the downtown Manhattan location on Friday, September 21. The Pace staff of the World Trade Center Institute located on the 55th Floor in One World Trade Center, miraculously escaped to safety.
