SEC Announces Agenda and Panelists for Small Business Forum
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the agenda, speakers and panelists for its November 19 forum on small-business capital formation.
The SEC forum will begin at 9 a.m., ET, at its Washington, D.C. headquarters, with opening remarks by SEC chairman Mary L. Schapiro. SEC Commissioner Troy A. Paredes will also deliver remarks. The forum panels, to be held in the morning, will focus on the state of small-business capital formation and the SEC's "accredited investor" definition. In the afternoon, forum breakout groups will develop recommendations to facilitate small-business capital formation.
Preregistered members of the public may attend the forum without charge. Online registration is available at the SEC small-business forum Web page. The forum also will be webcast live at www.sec.gov.
