Agenda Set for 2013 Municipal Finance Conference

The agenda is now set for the 2013 Municipal Finance Conference, sponsored by The Bond Buyer and Brandeis International Business School.  The conference will be held August 1-2, 2013 at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

As a member of the organizing committee, I am excited that two prominent leaders will give keynote addresses:

  • James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and a current member of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC); and
  • James Lebenthal, director of Lebenthal and Co.

Twenty-four timely research papers will be presented on the following themes:

  • Pensions and OPEB
  • Underwriting
  • Political Economy
  • Trading and Portfolio Management
  • Tax Exemption
  • Credit Ratings
  • Insurance, Bankruptcy and Distress
  • Market Segmentation

Please join us it.  This will be a valuable conference for municipal finance professionals.

Update: It was a terrific conference, even better than last year.  If you didn’t make it this year, I hope you consider including it in your schedule next year.  The conference is a unique way to keep up with the latest research in municipal finance.
