The Municipal Finance Conference was conceptualized and founded by Daniel Bergstresser and Richard Ryffel. The conference is sponsored each year by the Rosenberg Institute of Global Finance at Brandeis International Business School (IBS). The first conference was held in 2012 at Brandeis IBS, and has since grown to accommodate over 250 academics, practitioners, regulators and issuers each year.
Brandeis IBS co-hosted the Fourth Annual Municipal Finance Conference with the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. The conference was held at the Boston Fed on August 7, 2015. Pictures from the conference can be found here.
