Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox today announced the SEC will partner with the Elder Law Journal of the University of Illinois College of Law and the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to present the Senior Investor Protection Symposium in Chicago on May 18. The Symposium will feature a discussion panel including distinguished representatives from the business, law, regulatory and academic communities who have significant experience tackling the issues facing seniors as they prepare for and enjoy their retirement. The panelists will discuss how older Americans can protect themselves from investment fraud while financially preparing for the future.
The Symposium will be held May 18, 2007 from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the Illinois Rooms of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, 230 South LaSalle Street, Chicago, Ill. The public is invited to attend, but seating is limited. If you plan to attend in person, please go to http://www.sec.gov/cgi-bin/registration-form-ss and complete the online registration form or call (312) 353-0626, by May 10, 2007. Because space is limited, attendance will be limited to those who receive a confirmation letter from the SEC. On the day of the event, attendees will need to arrive early to check-in between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m., and to present a government-issued picture ID to pass through security.
