Open Books: Towards Transparency in Municipal Finance
February 4, 2016 | 12:00PM - 2:00PM
Speaker: Lynnette Kelly
Cities that finance public projects through municipal bonds owe their investors and the public an accurate and complete picture of their financial health. The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) is the regulator charged with ensuring the fairness and efficiency of the municipal market. Join MSRB Executive Director Lynnette Kelly for an overview of the bond issuance process, the role of financial professionals and the importance of disclosure. Kelly will also introduce the wealth of educational resources in the MRSB's online Education Center. This event is the third in a yearlong series that is part of the Lincoln Institute's campaign to promote municipal fiscal health.
