About the course

Over the course of two days, this live virtual seminar discusses public companies’ increasing focus on the quality of Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) disclosures in SEC filings. Each day’s agenda features individual modules (each less than an hour) as well as breaks. Key MD&A developments – including SEC guidance on COVID-19 disclosures, non-GAAP disclosures, the SEC Disclosure Effectiveness Project, SEC releases, comment letters, speeches, and disclosure best practices – are emphasized, with a focus on expanding and improving the effectiveness and compliance of MD&As.

Throughout the seminar, example MD&As and hands-on case studies involving actual MD&A disclosures provide participants with real-world opportunities to evaluate and critique MD&A disclosures and discuss how they might be improved and applied to their own MD&A disclosures.

This virtual seminar will have 2 parts. The seminar will run from approximately 11:00 am EST to 3:00 pm EST daily.

By attending both training days you will be eligible to earn up to 8 CPE credits. This virtual seminar is an equivalent to our MD&A Disclosures Workshop in-person seminar.
