Notice of meeting of SEC Advisory Committee on Smaller Public Companies.


The Securities and Exchange Commission Advisory Committee on Smaller Public Companies is providing notice that it will hold a public meeting on Thursday, June 16, 2005, at Columbia Law School, Jerome Greene Hall, Room 103, 435 West 116th Street, New York, New York, from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The meeting will reconvene on Friday, June 17, 2005, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The meeting will be audio webcast on the Commission's Web site at

The agenda for the Thursday session of the meeting includes considering reports of subcommittees or other subgroups of the Advisory Committee, approval of the Committee Agenda published for public comment in the Federal Register on April 29, 2005 and discussing any recommendations proposed for adoption by the Advisory Committee. A subgroup appointed to make suggestions to the Advisory Committee on defining the term “smaller public company” for purposes of the Advisory Committee's work is expected to deliver a report. The agenda for the Friday session includes considering written statements that have been filed in connection with the meeting and hearing oral testimony. The oral testimony will focus on methods the Advisory Committee might recommend to scale securities regulations for smaller public companies to assure that the costs and burdens of the regulations are commensurate with the benefits to investors and the public.


Requests to present oral testimony should be received on or before June 6, 2005. Written statements should be received on or before June 8, 2005.
