Seminar Description

Municipal Market Disclosure: The Development and Administration of Debt Disclosure Policies
April 7, 2016
Franklin Templeton Investments Headquarters, San Mateo, CA

Since 2010, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has predicated several enforcement actions at least in part on the failure of issuers to maintain sound disclosure policies. In addition, the SEC�s Enforcement Division has repeatedly placed heavy emphasis on issuers maintaining sound disclosure policies. In August 2015, the National Association of Bond Lawyers published guidelines to assist issuers in the development and administration of disclosure policies. This seminar intends to continue that dialogue by providing participants with an understanding of the purpose, structure, and content of disclosure policies, as well as practices that help issuers implement and maintain them. The seminar goes beyond the basis of the CDIAC 2015 webinar release, Disclosure Policies: What Every Issuer Should Know. This seminar qualifies for 7.0 hours of MCLE credit and is considered certifiable by most approving bodies.
