Listing Department

The department of a stock exchange responsible for ensuring compliance with listing requirements. These listing requirements mandate that every stock on the exchange have a certain market capitalization, number of shareholders, and/or revenue. Listing requirements exist to enforce stability on the exchange as much as possible. As such, the listing department decides which companies may be listed, which must be delisted, and even which are temporarily exempt from the listing requirements. The listing department is also called the stock list. See also: Listed company, C.

If you decide, as do many speakers, to state the purpose of your talk in this fashion: "I'm going to tell them what my organization does", you will then probably build your talk the way we used to create term papers: by making an outline of all the stuff your organization does, listing departments, throwing in some historical info, adding something about the publications you produce, maybe recalling some specific issues addressed by your group, and you will have, as one speaker described, "A nice, solid, informational presentation that I give all the time." (The nice, solid, excruciatingly boring presentation that we hear all the time?) This would be a talk developed from the perspective of the speaker.
