General Session: Representing the Infrequent Issuer
Thursday, March 9, 8:15am - 9:30am
Although some clients are regularly in the market and have a staff that works on compliance, most issuers of tax-exempt debt are sporadic issuers and rarely have dedicated staff to work on making sure that they comply with the tax law, securities law, and covenant restrictions that may apply to their financing. We will have an opening session that describes some of the legal and ethical problems that arise in working with those infrequent issuers and how bond or borrower counsel can help them to work through the mechanics of the financing itself and to identify potential post-issuance matters that they should watch out for.
Chris DeSantis is a consultant specializing in management and organizational interventions. He has special expertise in dealing with generational differences in the workplace. From baby boomers to Gen Xers to Millennials there are both commonalities and differences which shape how these groups work together, what they expect of themselves and each other, and how they approach their workplace responsibilities. In order to collaborate and work together effectively, it is critical to understand the significant trends, experiences and events that have shaped each of these generations. Some of the questions that must be addressed to do this are: How are communications delivered and received by each group? Are traditional notions of the workday still relevant? How do structure, control and direction come together in a cross-generational workplace?
The Institute offers the ability to earn up to 11 hours of CLE credit, depending on the jurisdiction, including ethics credit. This is an excellent opportunity to keep current with your law specialty and easily fulfill your mandatory CLE requirements. NABL will apply for continuing legal education credits, including ethics and professionalism credits, from those states that have mandatory CLE requirements. The necessary forms will be available at the program.
