Nossaman Partner Bill Bagley is one of 12 new members that have been inducted into the Futures Industry Association's Futures Hall of Fame, which was established in 2005 to commemorate outstanding contributions to the global futures and options community.  Since its inception, the Futures Hall of Fame has honored the accomplishments and contributions of 105 remarkable individuals from around the world.

Mr. Bagley was appointed by President Gerald Ford to serve as the first Chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission shortly after the agency was established in 1974.  He also served as one of the founding board members of the Futures Industry Association.  Futures Hall of Fame Member Leo Melamed wrote to Bill after his resignation from the CFTC, "No one other than you alone knows what is involved in setting up a brand new federal agency…so to you I take my hat off and say—well done."

Mr. Bagley has served as a member of the University of California Board of Regents and was named alumnus of the year in 2002 by the California Alumni Association.  He has also served on the California Public Utilities Commission and the California Transportation Commission, as well as the California legislature, representing Marin and Sonoma counties and successfully authoring more than 500 pieces of civil law legislation.
