What NASD or SEC rule states that we cannot charge attendees for our time in addition to materials or room rental? I believe I read this somewhere while studying for one of the exams we all have to pass.



If this rule exists, what is the reasoning behing it?



If this rule does not exist, great!

Post your question on the "Legal Issues" board. Maybe Bill Singer will answer it.

Yea, charge those dang freeloaders! Hell where to they get off, they take up space sitting there fat butts on that chair breathing valuable air and eating all that food.  Dang they should Pay!  Plus all that free great advice you're going to give them!  The dang nerve of some people.  Oh well even if the SEC don't let you charge I'm sure there is nothing there about passing a tip jar!  Just hire a 7' 300lb bald headed muscle bound black guy to pass it around and have him say something like "I would surely appreciate the TIP NOW! BITCH!! 


Now I'm sure the SEC hasn't thought of banning that one yet?  Double check first put I don't believe they have outlawed tips yet?


Brother Charlie Allnut a real lover of commissions!  Hate Fee's they just aren't good for business.  Makes us all look like a bunch of attorney's, now that isn't the image I want!  Use Car Salesman or a Attorney which is more disliked?

Just an idea-


How about hooking up with a non-profit organization- use their mailing list as well as your own- charge a $10 donation fee for the seminar and actually give the money to the charity. 'Course you might have to keep the seminar rather general...


But you might actually be perceived as someone who cares about his/her community...


I would defer to the legal eagles about it, but I don't recall any prohibition from charging for seminars. If wrong I prefer my crow medium well...
