Rep. Barney Frank (D. Mass.), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, has accepted an invitation from Chapter 293 to speak to SEC employees. He will appear at the Boston Regional Office on Tuesday, October 9, at 12:00 EST, and he will be video-conferenced to all of the SEC’s offices. At HQ, employees should meet at the Closed Commission Hearing Room, No. 10800. Regional employees should ask their local steward where to meet. The House Financial Services Committee oversees, among other things, the SEC and other entities, such as the NYSE and the NASD, that police the securities markets. Rep. Frank’s speech should be of interest to everyone at the agency.
