The 2016 Presidential campaign generated renewed interest in the need for Comprehensive Tax Reform. The President and Congress have indicated their desire to propose and pass comprehensive tax reform before the end of this year.

This event will bring together a cross section of business leaders—from tax and accounting to legal and government to renowned academics—to discuss the economic and tax policy issues surrounding the current tax reform proposals, as well as their economic impact.
The symposium will take place on Thursday. June 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law (299 North Spring Mill Road, Villanova, PA). A networking breakfast and lunch will be provided.
This program is approved for 4.5 substantive CLE credits by the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board and for 4.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) tax credits for Certified Public Accountants.
