To ensure that we continue to be responsive to members’ needs, the Institute once again participated in the Annual Business and Professions Study run by Beaton Research + Consulting. This survey measures member satisfaction, engagement and the overall performance of the Institute, and benchmarks the Institute against other associations in the market.
The results showed that we are generally getting things right, maintaining high scores for member engagement, keeping members up to date, and value of membership.
We appreciate members’ feedback, which continually helps us to confirm that we are moving in the right direction and ensures that we quickly respond to any areas needing improvement.
2014-15 membership renewal
Being a member of The Tax Institute means you have demonstrated a strong level of technical knowledge of the tax system and the highest level of ethical and professional conduct.
I invite all members to renew your membership online. This year, all online renewals made before 13 June 2014 go into the draw to win one of five iPad minis preloaded with Tax Institute e-books (valued at $1,000!), including our new title, The Tax Adviser's Guide to Part IVA.
Annual report and AGM
The Tax Institute’s annual report will be available online from late April, and the AGM will be held at 4.00pm on Wednesday 21 May 2014 at the Institute’s offices.
Tax Adviser of the Year Awards
The response to the Tax Adviser of the Year Awards was overwhelming. High-calibre nominations flooded in, making the judging process a long and difficult one. Three finalists were selected in each category and flown to Hobart to attend the 29th National Convention and the tax awards gala dinner.
Noel Rowland is Chief Executive Officer of The Tax Institute.
The Tax Institute is Australia’s leading professional association in tax. Its 13,000 members include tax agents, accountants and lawyers as well as tax practitioners in corporations, government and academia.
