MSRB Outreach Campaign Highlights EMMA’s Tools for State and Local Governments

Thursday, April 24, 2014

The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board has launched a “Putting EMMA to Work for You” campaign to raise mid-sized municipal issuers’ awareness of the importance of communicating with investors and complying with their disclosure obligations. The Electronic Municipal Market Access website is a resource for evaluating municipal finance options, complying with disclosure requirements and communicating with investors. Through local seminars and webcasts, the MSRB plans to reach all 50 states over the course of the next two years with practical guidance and tips about using EMMA to their advantage. The agency’s goal is to contribute to improved financial disclosure practices and enhanced transparency for the municipal market. State and local governments and related organizations can schedule a session with their group by contacting Ritta McLaughlin, the MSRB’s chief education officer, at 703-797-6714 or rmclaughlin@msrb.org.
