NASD has filed with the SEC a proposed rule change to amend NASD Rule 3010(a)(7) to require that registered principals, in addition to registered representatives, attend an annual compliance meeting.  NASD also is proposing a technical amendment to Rule 3010(a) to clarify that each member is required to establish and maintain a system to supervise the activities of each registered representative, registered principal, and associated person.
