“My involvement with the NTA over the years has been very rewarding, both personally and professionally. At the start of my career, I was aware that the best minds in tax policy were active in the NTA. What I did not know at the time was that such a great group of people came attached to all that expertise. Both the Spring Symposium and the Annual Conference are events that I do not miss. The conferences allow me to stay abreast of the latest developments in public finance, get feedback on my own research, meet others with a shared interest in public policy, and catch up with old friends. Sitting down for a conference lunch in a crowded hall surrounded by the chatter of a hundred different discussions, the NTA truly feels like home.”
