The Securities and Exchange Commission plans to get its CCO Outreach program underway in late spring to early summer in an effort to better communicate and coordinate with mutual fund chief compliance officers, Chairman William Donaldson told attendees at the Investment Company Institute Mutual Funds and Investment Management Conference.

Donaldson said that the Commission's examination staff will host regional seminars at which CCOs can learn the "nuts and bolts" of the examination process and what resources will be available to them. The regional seminars will serve as a lead-up to the agency's first CCO National Seminar, to be held at SEC headquarters in early fall, where roughly 500 CCOs will be in attendance.
