NABL SUMMARY OF VIEWPOINTS ON MCDC NOW AVAILABLE
Over the next few weeks, leading up to the December 1 deadline, NABL members will be advising issuer and obligated person clients on self-reporting under the Municipal Continuing Disclosure Cooperation Initiative. To assist its members in advising their clients, NABL has prepared a summary of views broadly held by practitioners on procedural aspects of self-reporting. The summary, Viewpoints on Issuer Participation in MCDC, is available here.
Many of the aspects in the summary were discussed in NABL’s October 15 teleconference, The Issuer's Deadline: Considerations and Ramifications of Self-Reporting . The October 15 teleconference was the third in a series of NABL teleconferences on MCDC. The first, an overview of MCDC, was held May 21. The second, MCDC – Should the Issuer Self-Report? , was held August 6. Recordings of the three teleconferences and their associated materials are available here.
