The principal topic will be the new Michigan securities rules. The effective date for the new rules set generally is July 3, 2019, with the Private Fund Adviser Exemption becoming effective on January 3, 2020.  Attached please see the rules. One issue that we will discuss will be the new “bad actor” disqualification of an issuer’s reliance upon Michigan exemptions from securities registration.  Shane Hansen kindly furnished the attached presentations on this and will lead our discussion. 

Shane will also furnish a few preliminary remarks on the following SEC rule-making activities that occurred earlier this week:
