One of ISDA's enduring strengths is the active participation of industry professionals -- and the expertise and knowledge they offer -- in the broad range of its activities through its committee structure. The Association's committees operate in virtually all the major financial centers and play an important role in facilitating the exchange of ideas, the examination of policy issues, and the flow of information among our members. In addition, they provide a force for developing initiatives and financial innovation.
