Live from Washington D.C. this Friday and Saturday (Feb. 24th & 25th), the SEC Chairman, Commissioners, and senior staff will convene at The SEC Speaks in 2012 to discuss the major changes to the regulatory landscape over the past year. The Securities Law Practice Center will be live blogging from some of the panels over the 2 days of the conference.
The Commission has engaged in a broad range of rulemaking projects to implement the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which has required significant rulemaking and provided enhanced enforcement authority to the Commission. Major headlines that will be discussed at The SEC Speaks in 2012 include the new requirements for hedge fund and other fund advisers, proposals to build a new regulatory structure for the security-based swaps market, as well as the new whistleblower program to incentivize those who possess useful information regarding unlawful conduct to come forward and assist the SEC in identifying potential violations of the federal securities laws.
Registration is still open, but if you can’t make it to Washington, D.C., we will be live blogging highlights from this important two-day conference. Check in early and often!
