The Workshop 2020 Goes Virtual

Due to the ever-changing public health concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic, travel concerns and restrictions, and in an abundance of caution, NABL has made the decision to move this year’s Workshop, scheduled for September 23-25, 2020, to a virtual event. 
A virtual Workshop will offer the same comprehensive coverage of the current state of the municipal markets as the in-person conference. Whether you are looking for information on timely topics or searching for new approaches to the changing municipal bond market, you’ll find what you’re looking for at this year’s virtual event. 
Watch your NABL emails for more information. 

NABL Seeks Nominees for Board of Directors

Members of the National Association of Bond Lawyers (NABL) have the opportunity to submit nominations for the 2020-2021 NABL Board of Directors.
The 2020 NABL Nominating Committee is seeking candidates for the 2020-21 Board of Directors. All members are encouraged to participate in the process of choosing NABL’s future leadership by recommending potential candidates (or self-nominating) to Linda Wyman, Chief Operating Officer. Emailed submissions should include a description of the nominee’s qualifications including NABL committee, project, and/or conference panel leadership and participation. The selection of the best candidates is driven by the desire to assure that the Board is composed of engaged members with appropriate skills and experience who represent the diversity of NABL’s membership. 
The list of the current Board of Directors can be found here. Nominations for the vacant board positions will be accepted through June 18, 2020. A candidate slate will be announced in accordance with the bylaws, in advance of the 2020 Annual Meeting.
