In response to many requests from our members now that the SEC’s Section 16 electronic filing system will be mandatory at the end of the month, Section16.net and the NASPP have put together a special webcast program to help you learn the ins and outs of how to file forms 3, 4 and 5 under the SEC’s new system, including how to address the quirks and flaws in the SEC’s new filing system.Join these panelists:

  • Alan Dye, Partner, Hogan & Hartson and Editor of Section16.net
  • Barbara Buisman, Manager, Equity Compensation Plan Administration, SUPERVALU
  • Herb Scholl, Division of Corporation Finance, SEC
  • Ron Smith, Section 16 Software Developer

This nuts and bolts program will walk you through what you really need to know about:

  • Preparing and filing forms on the new SEC system, and how filling out the forms on the SEC’s site can be complicated—and different from the forms you used to file;
  • Obtaining EDGAR filing codes for insiders, and ensuring they are not “wiped” out;
  • Posting the new forms on your corporate Website; and
  • The latest glitches and problems that have arisen, and what you can do to avoid/resolve them
