The Forum's Ninth Annual Policy Conference, May 4th - 5th, 2009

Each year, the Forum holds a two-day Policy Conference bringing independent directors together with legislators, regulators, and other industry experts to discuss issues of critical concern to fund directors. Through a series of panel discussions and break-out sessions, the conference focuses on information that help directors understand their complex challenges and help them become better, more effective, independent directors. Every Policy Conference also includes a look at the “Future of the Fund Industry” providing insight into tomorrow’s issues. Given recent market developments, and the continually evolving regulatory and legislative responses, the future of the fund industry is certain to be foremost in everyone's mind.  Though focused on the informational needs of fund independent directors, registration for the Policy Conference is open to all. 

The Ninth Annual Policy Conference will be held on May 4th and 5th, 2009 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, DC.  The program will begin on Monday, May 4th with breakfast at 8:00 am and conclude with lunch on Tuesday, May 5, 2009.

Forum members will receive an event brochure in the mail shortly.  For more details on the topics expected to be covered at the Policy Conference, as well as information on how to register and special hotel room rates at the Ritz Carlton for conference attendees, please visit the Ninth Annual Policy Conference web page at:
