Course Details: Bonds 101 and Primary & Continuing Disclosure Update
Target Audiences: School Districts
Category: Public Finance
The goal of this session is to introduce participants to the municipal bond industry, its key words, processes, and players in a non-technical, engaging way. We have found this session also helps experienced issuers increase their understanding in such a way as to more effectively describe the process to governing bodies, constituents and colleagues. The session ends with a special segment: “Important Update on Disclosure Practices” along with plenty of time for Q&A. This is not a “how to” lecture. The complex details of issuing bonds are better left to “Bonds 102”. Instead, this is a conceptual roadmap to help the reader gain a better footing in the world of bond related public finance.
Course Learning Objectives: - Overview of Municipal Bonds - Eligibility requirements - Legal requirements of Municipal Bonds - Update on disclosure practices
