MAY 3, 2012 | ZIGGURAT BUILDING | WEST SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA

Efforts to improve transparency related to municipal securities have stimulated debate concerning the content and timing of disclosures. This seminar, focusing on public pension disclosure, seeks to further that discussion by considering the primary and secondary disclosure practices maintained by state and local agencies. As reporting standards change, public officials need to understand the difference between what is required and what might be interpreted as best practices. The seminar seeks to assist local government officials and other market professions to improve their understanding of the policy and regulatory environment surrounding municipal disclosure and how that environment may change in the future.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This seminar is highly recommended for elected and appointed officials of a public agency, including debt administrators, finance officers, legal counsel, and members of a public agency governing body. The course is open to all public and private members of the public finance community.
