Arbitrator Training Opportunity
NFA is pleased to be co-sponsoring an arbitration seminar entitled, "Securities Arbitration and Mediation Hot Topics 2015," presented by the CityBar Center for CLE. The seminar will be held at the New York City Bar on Tuesday, May 19, 2015. This year's seminar starts at 9:00 a.m. and concludes with a working lunch at 12:15 p.m. NFA Members and arbitrators may attend this seminar at a discounted rate of $132.50. View the brochure for more information on how to register for the seminar.
As a reminder, all NFA arbitrators must complete some form of arbitration training every three years in order to remain eligible to serve as an NFA arbitrator. Attending this seminar will satisfy NFA's mandatory training requirement.
Questions concerning the seminar should be directed to Judy Jenks, Case Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-781-1431).
In order to remain eligible to serve, all NFA arbitrators are required to complete an arbitrator training program every three years. In an effort to provide a convenient and efficient method for arbitrators to satisfy this requirement, NFA now offers an online training program. The program is broken up into modules, and completing any one of the modules satisfies your requirement for three years. While you are not required to complete the modules in any particular order, NFA suggests that you start with An Online Learning Program for NFA Arbitrators since it provides a comprehensive overview of our forum. All programs below offer you periodic opportunities to save your progress, so you may return at another time to finish the program.
