During the 2019-20-year, leadership of the Tax section supported section member’s professional development efforts by offering various educational, social and networking opportunities.

Through the efforts of the leadership and its member’s support, membership increased during the year.

In early September 2019, the Tax Section held its annual business meeting to outline activities for the upcoming year. In October, section members enjoyed an evening of networking at Legion Brewing SouthPark. The section also co-hosts the MCB annual holiday party which was held in December.

“The Kastner Decision” Continuing Legal Education program was presented in November, in conjunction with the MCB Estate Planning and Probate Section.  In May, the webinar, “When the IRS Comes Knocking” was presented.

Due to the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2, the multi section, Charlotte Knights Baseball game, social event was cancelled.

Throughout the year, section leadership ensured members stayed up to date on relevant information and changes with regular section-wide communications.

The Tax section’s leadership is always exploring ways to enhance membership experiences. Please submit any ideas to
