IAA Committees and Working Groups

Legal and Regulatory Committee

The Legal and Regulatory Committee assists IAA staff in developing industry positions on U.S. regulatory proposals affecting investment advisers. The Committee also serves as a forum for IAA members to monitor regulatory developments and industry advocacy efforts, as well as to discuss implementation of new rules and other compliance-related issues. The Committee is designed for legal and compliance personnel who are willing and able to articulate their firm’s position on pending regulatory proposals.
