Registration for CPO Workshops

NFA announces regulatory workshops for entities that currently operate commodity pools whose exemptions expire on December 31, 2012

National Futures Association (NFA) will hold a series of workshops in London, New York, Chicago and San Francisco for entities that, due to the recent CFTC rule amendments, are operating or advising commodity pools that had previously been exempt from registration as CPOs or CTAs. The workshops, presented by NFA staff and other futures professionals, will focus on the registration process, disclosure document preparation, performance reporting, financial reporting requirements, sales practices and the NFA audit process.

The fee to attend the seminar is $200.00 USD. The fee includes continental breakfast, morning and afternoon refreshment breaks, luncheon and all meeting materials.

NFA accepts credit card payments only. Space is limited and payment is required at the time of registration.
