As an industry, we are confronted with a number of challenges as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and transition to a new normal. A historically low-interest-rate era is ending, state and local governments are adjusting to significant major changes in how people live and work in post-pandemic world, and we are all finding new ways to interact with our clients and each other. 

This year, we are pleased to offer The Workshop in hybrid format, meeting the needs members who wish to return to in-person meetings and accommodating those who prefer to participate remotely. Each session is designed to allow practitioners and government and industry representatives the opportunity to exchange ideas and information about municipal bond law and practice.
