S.E.C. Chief Levitt To Speak

Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Arthur Levitt will unveil a major initiative to reform the mutual fund industry at a special meeting of the Boston Citizen Seminar at the Boston Harbor Hotel on Feb. 25 at 4 p.m.

University Chancellor J. Donald Monan, SJ, will receive a community service award at the seminar, which is jointly sponsored by Boston College and Associated Industries of Massachusetts.

Carroll School of Management Executive Director for Corporate and Government Affairs Peter Rollins, the seminar's coordinator, pointed out that Boston is the birthplace of the mutual fund industry, so Levitt's address - which will focus on an SEC move to reform mutual fund disclosure requirements - is a notable event.

"The Boston Citizen Seminar is very proud the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission has chosen this venue to announce a major policy initiative," Rollins said. "We're thrilled that he's coming."

University Trustee Associate William Connell, chairman of the Boston Citizen Seminar, will present the award to Fr. Monan in recognition of his extensive community involvement during his 24 years as University president. The award is the first of its kind to be granted by the seminar series.

Launched in 1954, the Boston Citizen Seminar series brings together political, business, religious and labor leaders to discuss and debate some of the issues that have potential impact on the city and the region. As many as 250 business and government leaders are expected to attend the event.
