SEC Announces Agenda for Meeting of the Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies


Today, the SEC announced the agenda for the October 5th meeting of the Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies. 

The Advisory Committee on Small and Emerging Companies provides a formal mechanism for the SEC to receive advice and recommendations on privately held small businesses and publicly traded companies with a market capitalization less than $250 million.

On October 5th the meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the multipurpose room at the SEC’s headquarters at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. The meeting is open to the public, will be webcast live on the SEC’s website, and archived on the website for later viewing. 

The committee will discuss

Regulation S‑K disclosure requirements,

research regarding corporate board diversity,

and outreach to smaller companies about capital raising.

The committee also will receive updates from the Division of Trading and Markets on equity market structure initiatives, a tick-size pilot, and the treatment of so-called “finders” that assist companies in capital raising activities.

Members of the microcap community who wish to provide their views on the matters to be considered by the committee may submit comments through the SEC’s Internet submission form or send an e-mail to
