What would you ask a panel of seasoned IRO professionals gathered to share valuable insights into how best to communicate with your investors?

  • What works in good times?
  • What works in not-so-good times?
  • Do you have a strategy?
  • What does your message tell your investors?

Bring your questions to our Senior IRO Panel and socialize with your fellow NIRI friends on January 14!  This fun event mixes things up a bit - instead of our usual Tuesday venue at the Denver Athletic Club, our January program will be held in the Denver Tech Center (by popular demand!).  The event will be in the evening on a Wednesday at Chinook Tavern in Greenwood Village. Program cost includes appetizers and two drinks.
