The third panel will focus on other potential alternatives to the current issuer pay business model. The roundtable discussion will be held in Room L-006 (the multi- purpose room) at the Securities and Exchange Commission's headquarters located at 100 F Street NE., in Washington, DC 20549. The public is invited to observe the roundtable discussion. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
