Symposia & Seminars

MMIPlainLogo02Throughout its history, MMI organized annual conferences for members and their invited guests, a Members Retreat in a U.S. locale and an International Inquiry at an overseas financial center. These were designed to address topics related to the Institute’s mission and priorities and to serve networking purposes among members and guests. Smaller gatherings in central financial and policy centers are organized as warranted.

Since 2002, when it attended the International Conference on Financing Development in Monterrey, Mexico, MMI has focused more on presentations at conferences organized by the Evian Group, Observatoire de la Finance, Japan Society and the United Nations.
