She continues, “It is a wonderful organization dedicated to educating tax professionals and advocating on behalf of its members, their clients, and the public with respect to tax laws. It is an organization where practicing, experienced practitioners help one another on a regular basis. You can always pick up the phone and get sound advice from a colleague.”
