will focus on the first year of Regulation A+,  the SEC's recent proposal to amend the definition of "smaller reporting company," and  broadening the "accredited investor" definition so more people can participate in unregistered offerings. 
The panel recommended in 2015 that the agency expand eligibility to be an accredited investor through a "sophistication test, regardless of income or net worth," rather than raising the qualifying threshold.
