Update: 2020 May Tax Meeting
It is with great regret that the ABA and the Section of Taxation (“Section”) have decided to CANCEL the in-person 2020 May Tax Meeting scheduled for April 30-May 2 in Washington, D.C.
Recent events, including the guidance issued by the CDC, the declaration of a public health emergency in Washington, D.C., the WHO declaration of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as a pandemic, the growing number of law firms, corporations, and governmental agencies limiting or prohibiting travel, uncertainty caused by the U.S. government’s ban on travel from Europe to the U.S., the closing of restaurants, theaters and bars, and the numerous recommendations by other public health organizations against holding large group meetings, make it clear that going forward with the Spring Meeting would be unreasonable and likely impossible.
An enormous amount of preparation has gone into planning this year’s program, but it is imperative that we prioritize the health and well-being of our members and guests. Nevertheless, plans are underway to try and present a meaningful amount of the programs to our audience on a virtual basis over the next 2-5 months. The Section is investigating various delivery options, and we will communicate more information in the future as our plans solidify. Moreover, the Section will shortly provide more information to you regarding refunds of registration fees.
