The municipal marketplace is rapidly evolving after a push from investors and the federal government over the last few years for stronger disclosure requirements. This seminar will provide an overview for issuers and other marketplace participants on how current debt issuance and management trends are affecting public-sector entities. Presenters will guide participants through the responsibilities before, during, and after bonds are sold, common transaction stakeholders, rating agency expectations, as well as other functions of debt management. The seminar will feature practical examples, highlight recent regulatory changes, and encourage interactive discussion on each topic. Relevant best practices, advisories, and resources created by GFOA’s Committee on Governmental Debt Management will also be discussed. Participants will gain a better understanding of the risks associated with issuing debt and how to navigate an increasingly complex marketplace.
