On March 15, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission published in the Federal Register a request for nominees for the membership positions on the Market Risk Advisory Committee (MRAC). MRAC is a discretionary advisory committee that conducts public meetings and submits reports and recommendations to the CFTC on matters including systemic risk and changes in the market structure of the derivatives markets and other financial markets. In addition to requesting MRAC membership nominations, the Federal Register release also invited the public to recommend additional topics that should be prioritized by the committee.
The deadline for nominations and meeting topics is March 29.
