Usually only Full Members and Associate Members may attend the monthly STA meetings.
However, you may also attend a monthly STA meeting as a non-member, either as a guest of a member or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and asking to be added to the guest list.
At the monthly meetings a technical analysts, broker or hedge fund manager etc. presents the latest techniques, research or forecasts using technical analysis. Each talk begins promptly at 6.30pm, lasts about 45 minutes and is followed by a 10-15 minute question and answer session. The evening is then followed by a networking drinks reception 7.30pm until 8.30pm.
The July and December meetings have always been viewed as more social occasions at which the Summer and Christmas ‘parties’ are held. At these events canapés are being served, together with the refreshments usually provided at monthly meetings. In previous years the talks at these ‘parties’ were also of a more light-hearted or historical nature, with an emphasis as much on entertainment as education.
Every alternate year an annual dinner is held at the National Liberal Club at Whitehall Place in London. This members as well as non-members can buy tickets for. It is a social evening in magnificent surroundings with an after dinner speaker and the use of a lovely terrace overlooking the Embankment and the Thames.
Members who cannot attend the monthly meetings in London can view these on the STA website a few days after the event. With Coronavirus social distance rules, physical meetings have been replaced by live virtual webinars until 2021. These are also recorded for those unable to access in real time.
The STA has been holding monthly lectures and meetings in the City of London since 1968.
As a service to members we video most of the meeting presentations and these are available for members to view free of charge.
