One Month Until The Essentials: Virtual 2021!

Do you know someone who could benefit from learning more about the general, tax, and securities laws that are important to the public finance practice? If so, encourage them to attend The Essentials: Virtual 2021, June 8-11, 2021. During the four-day conference, attendees will take part in four general sessions, choose from 20 breakout sessions, and participate in three virtual networking receptions.

“I am excited to attend The Essentials again this June now that I have started to dig into public finance law. I hope to connect with other new lawyers navigating the learning curve and experienced professionals with insights to the practice. I am also looking forward to the Avoiding Private Activity session to learn tips and tricks on how to approach the subject in our practice.”
-- Mae Meierhenry, Meierhenry Sargent LLP, Sioux Falls, SD

There is a new session “The Role of Issuer’s Counsel in Bond Issues,” which will focus on the duties, responsibilities, and concerns of issuer’s counsel in a bond issue, including, above all, protecting the issuer. Attendees can earn up to 20 CLE hours. Join your colleagues and register by Monday, June 7, 2021

NABL Seeks to Move the Needle with Virtual Advocacy Meetings 

In January 2021, NABL launched an initiative to host virtual advocacy meetings for our membership to connect with staff from their congressional delegation. Our members have been directly engaging on the issues we care about, including preservation of the tax-exemption for municipal bonds, restoring tax-exempt advance refunding bonds, supporting modifications to the bank qualified bond rules, supporting the introduction of a new direct-pay bond model, and expanding volume cap for private activity bonds. Personal meetings with constituents are especially important as Congress continues to debate a large infrastructure package. To learn more about these meetings or how to be an extension of NABL’s advocacy team in DC, please email NABL’s Director of Governmental Affairs Jessica Giroux at
