Meet NTA’s Officers

If you had a new empirical or theoretical finding, or an interesting application of one to a current policy issue in public finance, with whom would you want to share it? If you wanted to learn about current public finance research being undertaken in economics, accounting, and law by those ranging from PhD students to distinguished academicians to experienced government or private sector practitioners, where would you go? For me the answer has been the NTA — a professional family of diverse professionals sharing a common interest in increasing our knowledge of, and improving the practice of, public finance. From the annual conference to the Spring symposium to each issue of the NTJ, there is something for everyone. I encourage you to participate actively in the NTA and help extend its impact for all members.

“The National Tax Association brings together experts in all areas of tax policy and a variety of disciplines that explore tax issues. It is a focal point for research and policy; federal, state and local issues; for economists, accountants, lawyers, and others. It is also a remarkably collegial and dynamic group of colleagues. For graduate students to seasoned professionals, NTA conferences represent a great way to meet and keep up with other tax experts and to present and critique current research. The National Tax Journal offers a visible way to get research results into the mainstream. I am honored to have the opportunity to build on these traditions and encourage everyone, young and ‘forever young,’ to be involved.”
