TAX Section Clubs
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
Upcoming presentation: December 5th from 12pm to 2pm includes lunch and a program on accounting for uncertainty in taxes.

Comments from past Women in Tax Law participants:
I thought overall this was a wonderful event. I would have liked for it to be longer to
allow for more Q and A opportunities.
Thanks for the excellent session last week. The series has
great promise. Thanks.
I really enjoyed the opportunity
to network prior to the panel speeches. I thought this was a better idea
in some ways than networking after the speeches, since afterwards, the panel
speakers often get swarmed by guests and they are difficult to talk to for that
reason. By having the women talk before the panel, it was easier to get
to speak to a greater number of women.
