2020 State & Local Tax Workshop

August 7 via Webcast

Right on time.

Now that the legislative sessions are over, it’s time to unpack what went down. This conference is planned specifically to address any major changes to tax policies that may have happened during the session. We bring together the state’s leading authorities and practitioners to give you a 360-degree update on how these changes will impact you and the organizations you work with. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions of LDR reps and other leaders. Don’t miss it!

We're bringing the conference to you!

The conference will look a little different this year, but you’ll get the same great content you’ve come to expect from LCPA events. Here’s how it will work:

  • The speakers will be “live” from their location, so you’ll see them on-screen next to their presentation.
  • All materials will be distributed electronically, ensuring you have the most up-to-date information that you can easily save for future reference.
  • The platform is interactive – you’ll have to ability to ask questions of the speaker.
  • The CPE verification process is simple and we’ve built in breaks so you can take a stretch

So make plans to join us from the comfort of your favorite wifi-enabled location. Register today!

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the State & Local Tax Workshop will be offered as a live-stream webcast this year. The format may be different but rest assured, you’ll get the same great content delivered by some of our most popular speakers — all from the comfort of your home or office.

The health of our members, speakers, and staff is always top of mind as we find innovative ways to bring you the most relevant information as safely as possible at the same quality as you have come to expect.
