Last month we held our very first online Careers in Tax Week, where over 600 people attended webinars to help them understand the important roles of working in tax. Keep an eye out for similar careers events — and as always, we appreciate your feedback.
2013 Annual Business and Professional Study
As in previous years, The Tax Institute will again participate in the annual business and professional study conducted by Beaton Consulting. This survey will assist us in identifying areas where there may be scope to improve member services and add further value to membership.
You will receive the survey via email in November. We appreciate your feedback as this helps us to ensure that we continue to do things right.
