Region II holds tax forum in Atlantic City.

On June 12-13, TEI Region II held its Regional Tax Forum 2006, co-sponsored by KPMG LLP and McCarter & English LLP, at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City. The two-day program for tax executives provided a high-level overview of current tax developments and legislative changes. The regional forum was the first in many years and an unqualified success. More than 100 tax professionals from Region II and surrounding chapters attended. The attendees received cutting-edge instruction while experiencing the ambiance of the Borgata.

Spearheaded by the New Jersey Chapter of TEI, the Forum commenced each day with plenary sessions of general interest, followed by concurrent sessions on federal, international, and state and local topics. Attendees chose from among various sessions in an open-registration format.

Tony Bernice, Region II Vice President, was pleased with the turnout. "Our region's tax executives are committed to staying abreast of current developments, and New Jersey's Atlantic City proved an ideal setting for that endeavor." Atlantic City is one of New Jersey's premier resort locations.
