As REG A+ gains momentum, new legislation in support of small businesses is introduced and with final Title III rules now here, it is more important than ever to remain on the forefront of industry evolution.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 02, 2015
The Crowdfunding Professional Association (CfPA) is pleased to announce that Congressman Patrick McHenry, the principal architect of historic U.S. equity crowdfunding legislation, and a tireless advocate for entrepreneurs and small and emerging businesses, will be the Keynote Speaker at the CfPA’s Third Annual Crowdfinance Summit, to be held on December 2, 2015 in Washington, D.C. The theme of this year’s Summit will be Outlook and Opportunities in 2016, reviewing rapidly evolving developments and practices in the crowdfinance industry. Congressman McHenry will be joined at the Summit by dozens of other prominent leaders in the industry. A complete current listing of Summit speakers, as well as Event registration information, is available at http://www.cfpa.org/2015-summit/.
This year’s Summit will be both timely and groundbreaking, with the adoption by the SEC of final JOBS Act Title III equity crowdfunding rules on October 30, 2015, the recent implementation of SEC Regulation A+, and accredited investor crowdfunding in operation for more than two years.
The CfPA Summit provides a unique one-day opportunity to listen to, learn from, and network with industry leaders, including SEC officials and state regulators, legislative officials, founders and operators of leading crowdfinance platforms, leading legal, financial and accounting professionals, academic thought leaders, and nationally recognized industry advocates.
All interested members of the public are welcome to attend this year’s Summit, and those registering for this year’s Summit will automatically receive a one year individual membership in the CfPA. Those interested in attending the Summit in person should register early, as space is limited and the event is expected to sell out. Early Bird registration ends on November 6.
