On April 28, Joseph P. Borg, the Ombuds for the North American Securities Administrators Association, will host an open meeting at the Annual Public Policy Conference in Washington, DC. Borg was appointed to the position in December 2008, and is also Director of the Alabama Securities Commission. The NASAA Ombuds program serves as a neutral forum for the securities industry representatives and works to open channels of communication and to foster relationships with securities industry representatives. Ombuds programs are becoming a fixture in the financial services industry, and NASAA's Ombuds will surely have many issues to discuss. (NASAA Annual Public Policy Conf. Info.; NASAA Ombuds Page.)
