BLX/Orrick 2022 Post-Issuance Compliance Workshop - Hybrid Event (COMPLETED 11/4/2022)

A Comprehensive Overview of Post-Issuance Tax Law and SEC Secondary Market Disclosure for 501(c)(3) Organizations and State and Local Government Issuers Who Utilize Tax-Exempt Financing

The 2022 Workshop will again be a hybrid event, with in-person attendance at the Virgin Hotels Nashville and a livestream option. In-person attendance will be limited to 50 attendees, subject to the COVID-19 health protocols detailed below. In addition, through the livestream option, we will make available all content on a virtual platform with the ability for participants to interact with the presenters throughout the workshop. Both the in-person and livestream options will allow participants to replay any of the sessions for up to 30 days after the event.

Our desire is to host an event for the community that provides timely and relevant information while following recommended protocols and that is safe for both the attendees and for our team. The livestream option represents an exciting way for us to bring our content to a much broader audience.

Please note: Due to the limited in-person capacity, live attendance at Virgin Hotels Nashville will be restricted to TWO PEOPLE PER ORGANIZATION. If your organization would like for more than two people to attend in-person, please contact Cynthia Sixtos at csixtos@blxgroup.com.


The BLX/Orrick Workshop offers timely discussions of topics related to post-issuance compliance and tax and SEC rules and regulations for the public finance and 501(c)(3) communities who borrow on a tax-exempt basis. With open forums allowing for attendee participation, BLX and Orrick professionals will lead the program and assist participants with understanding the IRS and SEC regulations and requirements relating to tax-exempt debt. The sessions encourage audience participation and address questions from participants relating to real life circumstances. The BLX and Orrick team strives to make the discussion of tedious tax laws understandable and relatable.
