Clarify the revisions to Article 9
The amendments all relate to practical, real-world problems that have either arisen in the marketplace since the last revision, or have been created by mistakes in that revision. Here are 3 important reasons for you to learn about the revisions now:

  1. You will identify and be able to correct existing problems in your transactions that you never knew existed.
  2. Many of the changes have been accomplished by amending the Official Comments without amending the text of the statute and the new comments are effective NOW!
  3. There are complex transition rules that you must understand in order to preserve the integrity of your existing transactions.

Explore the critical role of the “registered organization” in the Article 9 scheme
The amendments include organizations that previously did not qualify. If you don’t understand the changes, your new financing statements might be filed in the wrong jurisdiction and existing financing statements might lose their effectiveness and leave you unperfected.

Get the debtor’s name right
Complex new rules detail with more specificity than ever the name of the debtor that must be used on your financing statements. If you don’t understand them, you might file under the wrong name and fail to achieve perfection. The new rules for individual names are particularly complex and subtle.

Gain a thorough understanding of the new forms
The filing forms have been thoroughly revised and reorganized, and there are changes to the types of information that must be provided.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m.
