As another year begins, I’d like to first wish our members a Happy New Year. I hope you had the opportunity to take a well-deserved break over the holiday period.
Here at The Tax Institute we are busy planning for the year ahead, aligning our activities with our key strategic priorities.
The focus areas for 2013 include:
- the member experience — responding to members’ needs;
- products and services —providing leading-edge knowledge to all members;
- leadership —shaping improvements in, and the application of, tax law and its administrations and, as the champion of the tax profession, to raise professional and ethical standards ensuring that members are the sought-after tax experts; and
- people and infrastructure — to enable and strengthen our business operations.
The Institute has a number of major activities planned for the year, some of which I will update you on in the coming weeks.
Celebrating 70 years of supporting the tax profession
In July 2013, The Tax Institute will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the founding of the Institute. To celebrate this milestone, the Institute will organise a number of activities throughout the year to provide an opportunity for tax professionals to reflect on how the Institute and its members have helped to shape the industry over the years.
Visit our website over the coming months to find out how you can help us celebrate.
