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
- 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.
