Massachusetts & Rhode Island Take Over the NATP National Conference

Greetings from the Windy City!! Just a couple of notes from NATP Annual Conference in Chicago!

We are happy to report that we have 18-Massachusetts Members and 4-Rhode Island members in attendance. All have attended different classes and have been very happy with the courses being offered, the instructors are great.

Some have attended classes taught by Kathy Morgan, who will be presenting at our Annual Meeting on October 22nd. This is definitely an event you should not miss!!

We were honored to have Commissioner Charles Rettig as a speaker yesterday. Overall everyone found him to be very personnel, he comes from a tax background and seems to understand the problems we encounter when dealing with the IRS. Opinions seem to be, let’s give him a chance and hope Congress gives him the tools to make changes. It won’t happen overnight but it feels more positive that things will happen.

Last evening was the Charity Auction, there were many baskets donated by various chapters. Here is a picture of our basket which ended with a final bid of $200.

Fun was had by all who participated!! They will announce the total raised for CASA Thursday night at the closing ceremony. Stay tuned for the final figure!

This evening we had our Chapter Dinner held at Gino’s East, famous for Chicago Pizza. It was excellent. 15 members were able to join us!
