October 28-29, 2021
Hybrid Event At the Vdara Hotel and Spa and Virtual
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN:
A Comprehensive Overview of Post-Issuance Tax Law and SEC Secondary Market Disclosure for 501(c)(3) Organizations and State and Local Government Issuers Who Utilize Tax-Exempt Financing
The 2021 Workshop will be a hybrid event, with very limited in-person attendance and a livestream option. In-person attendance will be limited to 32 attendees, based upon the conference facilities and social distancing guidelines. In addition, through the livestream option, we will make available all the content on a virtual platform with the ability for participants to interact with the presenters and with other attendees throughout the workshop. Both the in-person and livestream options will allow participants to replay any of the sessions for up to 30 days after the event.
Our desire is to host an event for the community that provides timely and relevant information while following Orrick’s recommended protocols and is safe for both the attendees and for our team. The livestream option represents an exciting way for us to bring our content to a much broader audience.
Please note: Due to the limited in-person capacity, live attendance at the Vdara will be restricted to one person per organization.

The BLX/Orrick Workshop offers timely discussions of topics related to post-issuance compliance and tax law for the public finance and 501(c)(3) communities who borrow on a tax-exempt basis. With open forums allowing for attendee participation, BLX and Orrick professionals will lead the program and assist participants with understanding the IRS and SEC regulations and requirements relating to tax-exempt debt. The sessions encourage audience participation and address questions from participants relating to real life situations. The BLX and Orrick team strives to make the discussion of tedious tax laws understandable and relatable.

- Best practices for post-issuance tax compliance
- Private business use rules and regulations
- IRS safe harbor compliance for management and service contracts
- IRS safe harbor compliance for sponsored research agreements
