"Hedge Fund Association is committed to defending the image of hedge funds, and adding to opportunities for industry growth," said David Friedland, HFA President. "In the months ahead, our new directors, regional leaders and valued members can look forward to HFA events in more cities, new advisory committees devoted to building and protecting your hedge fund business, and a renewed focus on accelerating opportunity for all industry participants."

HFA continues its Capitol Hill "Speak Up" campaign, which seeks to ensure that regulation of the hedge fund industry meets government concerns without imposing excessive measures that make it costly for emerging funds to operate, and could impede growth and job creation. HFA Directors David Friedland, Ron S. Geffner, Richard Heller, Howard Altman and Mitch Ackles lead these efforts for HFA. HFA is also working with The Managed Funds Association (MFA) on lobbying where both groups missions align.
