The CFTC announced on Tuesday that participants can register for office hours by sending an email to LabCFTC@cftc.gov (the subject line of the email should read "NYC Office Hours"). The statement said: "Office hours provide an opportunity for fintech innovators and entrepreneurs to exchange ideas, share presentations and better understand the CFTC framework with LabCFTC."
