End of Tax Connect and Next Steps for Committee Communication

Tax Section members who have joined one or more of our 36 substantive committees may be familiar with the platform called Tax Connect that committees have used over the last three years to communicate with their members.

Tax Connect was discontinued on Friday, December 3 and committee leadership and members now use email listserves as the primary means to communicate announcements and share resources.

If you have not joined a committee, we encourage you to join one now to make the most of your Tax Section membership. Simply visit your My ABA page by following these instructions to add a new committee or contact us if you need assistance. Committee memberships are free and unlimited for Tax Section members.

If your My ABA account indicates you have joined a committee and/or you have received messages from Tax Connect in the past, you should automatically be added to the email listserve for that committee and receive a welcome message at some point. If you have not received a welcome message, please check your spam folder, or visit your My ABA account to see which committees you have indicated. To learn about how to use Listserve visit our How to and FAQ page here.

Additionally, the ABA is replacing Tax Connect’s other features with a new platform called Hivebrite. The Section will host information sessions and share more tools and resources about how to use Hivebrite in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we have several helpful Hivebrite tutorials and a FAQ. Reach out to staff below with any additional questions.

With Hivebrite, committee members will be able to:

Search posts that went through Tax Connect in the last three years

Access useful materials and share them with the community

Receive announcements and reminders from the leadership of the committee

Add events directly to your calendar

To find a committee’s listserve email address or Hivebrite community, simply visit the page for the specific committee.
