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

    

The 2023 Workshop will again be a hybrid event, with in-person attendance at 1 Hotel West Hollywood and a livestream option. The in-person option represents a great way for attendees to interact and socialize with other attendees, industry professionals, and the BLX and Orrick team. 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 and other attendees throughout the workshop. The livestream option represents an exciting way for us to bring our content to a much broader audience.

Both the in-person and livestream options will allow participants to replay any of the sessions for up to 30 days after the event.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The BLX/Orrick Workshop offers timely and relevant discussions of topics related to post-issuance tax compliance and IRS 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 with curated content to assist participants with understanding the ongoing compliance 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.
