TAX Section Under Ten Club

The section sponsors a “tax club” for members of the Tax Section with less than ten years of legal experience. We call it “Under 10.” The purpose of Under 10 is to bring together lawyers from various law firms, allow them to get to know each other better and offer an environment for learning more about current tax issues. In addition, we hope that attendees will become involved in the Tax Section and in reports prepared by the Section. We anticipate that Under 10 will meet quarterly on specific topics. If you are interested in joining the Under 10 club please contact Pat Johnson at pjohnson@nysba.org or 518.487.5688.

 The Section has formalized its “Under 10” tax club for members of the Tax Section who graduated from law school less than 10 years ago. With organizational and financial support of the Tax Section, the club operates independently from the Tax Section through its own officers and meets four times per year.  The goal of the club is to serve as a source of professional development and networking for mid-level and senior associates.

See Under 10 bylaws here.
