“Being a part of NABL has been one of the best things about practicing public finance law. It has provided me with numerous educational opportunities to expand my knowledge so that I can better serve my clients. Also, NABL has allowed me to make life-long friends.

“My involvement with NABL has been incredibly rewarding both personally and professionally. I have developed some great friendships over the years. NABL has been a great resource for my securities law and disclosure practice. By serving as a conference chair and panelist, I have been able to focus on the latest developments in numerous disclosure law matters. I just completed work chairing the NABL task force which undertook updates to NABL’s disclosure guidelines in light of the amendments to Rule 15c2-12.”
