The nascent Philadelphia Municipal Analyst Society will meet from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. March 6 at the Top of the Tower conference room, 3 Logan Square.

Municipal analysts will discuss strategic outlooks for 2014 in a moderator-directed panel. The group will include Peter DeGroot from JPMorgan; John Hallacy from Assured Guaranty Municipal Corp.; and Meghan Robson from Morgan Stanley.

The society drew 50 people to its inaugural event in November. Its ultimate goal is to become a constituent society of the National Federation of Municipal Analysts and have representatives on the NFMA board.

"I am hoping that the momentum continues and a vibrant new chapter of the NFMA emerges as a result," said Jean Lu, a principal and senior analyst at Vanguard Group and a member of the society's planning committee.
