The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board announced yesterday that it will hold a joint seminar with the Regional Bond Dealers Association on May 13 in Memphis to review the MSRB's latest rules and recent initiatives.

The seminar will focus on market regulation, the MSRB's transparency initiatives, market conditions, and policy trends. It will be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Madison Hotel, and is open to all members of the municipal securities community, including professionals at broker-dealers and asset managers, muni financial advisers, issuers, and bond counsel, the board and RBDA said in a statement.

"The MSRB is pleased to work with the RBDA to keep market participants informed about new and existing regulations at a time when compliance is vital to the dealer community," said MSRB executive director Lynnette Hotchkiss.

Mike Nicholas, co-chief executive officer of RBDA, said: "In addition to discussions of the most pressing regulatory and compliance matters, the RBDA is happy to work with the MSRB on sessions addressing public policy and business matters directly impacting the municipal bond market."
