For decades, fund executives have come to ICI’s General Membership Meeting (GMM) to get an in-depth understanding of the policy landscape surrounding the industry. The 2013 GMM will continue that tradition, starting with the participation of Mary John Miller, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Under Secretary for Domestic Finance, at the event’s annual Policy Forum on May 1.

At Treasury, Under Secretary Miller develops and coordinates policies and guidance regarding financial institutions, federal debt financing, financial regulation, and capital markets. She brings a deep knowledge of the fund industry to her post. Prior to entering public service, she spent 26 years with the T. Rowe Price Group, where she was director of the firm’s fixed-income division and a member of its management committee.

GMM attendees also will receive insights on domestic and global matters from Lloyd C. Blankfein, Chairman and CEO of The Goldman Sachs Group. Blankfein, who has led Goldman Sachs since 2006, will engage in dialogue with ICI President and CEO Paul Schott Stevens at the luncheon on Thursday, May 2.

Other distinguished GMM panelists and speakers, hailing from across government, industry, and academia, include:

  • Marie Chandoha, President and CEO of Charles Schwab Investment Management
  • Ian Bremmer, President of the Eurasia Group and Columbia University Professor
  • Former U.S. Senators and bipartisan fiscal reform committee members Kent Conrad and Judd Gregg
  • John Thiel, Head of Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
