About the Committee

Welcome to the Exempt Organizations Committee website. This is an active and engaged Committee focusing on issues affecting tax-exempt organizations. Our Committee normally meets and puts on panels all day on Fridays of in-person Tax Section meetings. In addition, we have a monthly zoom at 12 p.m. Eastern time on the first Thursday of the month. To register, follow this link. All are welcome!

The Exempt Organizations Committee has numerous subcommittees that focus on specific issues or particular types of exempt organizations; they meet in conjunction with Committee meetings.

We are actively seeking young attorneys interested in developing careers in this specialty. If you are interested in networking with peers sharing an interest in exempt organizations and taxation, please contact us. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!

Stay in Touch with Your Committee: Zoom, Listserv and Hivebrite

Each month, the Committee hosts its First Thursday Noon Zoom to discuss current developments affecting exempt organizations. To register, please click here.

Every Tax Section committee has a mailing list (listerv) and a Hivebrite community. Information about and links to both are below. 


Committees share news, events, and updates through a dedicated committee listserv. As a committee member, you are welcome and encouraged to share resources, events, or ask questions to fellow committee members that are directly relevant. The listserv email address can be found below. You are automatically added to the listserv and will receive email notifications when you join a committee.   Learn more about managing your committees.

Click the link above to view the committee listserv email address. Note: you must be logged in and a Section Member to view the address.


In addition to listserv, each committee has a Hivebrite community. Here, committees can share meeting materials or recordings, committee newsletters, and more. All Tax Connect discussion posts have been moved over to the committee's Hivebrite community
