The time of the seminar has been changed to 8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. CDT from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. CDT.  The later start time will provide better coordination with the RBDA National Fixed Income Conference and Technology Summit, which commences at 12 Noon at the same location.

MSRB legal and policymaking staff, and staff from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will discuss compliance and enforcement priorities. This seminar is open to all members of the municipal securities community. There is no charge for attending; however, pre-registration is required.
