Updated 3/4/13: The deadline for proposals to present at NCTC's annual conference in September is coming up this Friday March 8th. See the details below and contact NCTC with any questions.
The National Community Tax Coalition (NCTC) is holding its 9th national conference in New Orleans September 10-13, 2013. This year’s conference centers on advancing, sustaining and growing the community tax preparation and asset building field. In particular, the conference will focus on the role the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) field and asset building community more broadly can play in shaping best practices, research priorities, and policy implementation.
Proposals are due by March 8, 2013 and will be evaluated on the basis of "importance, relevance, and potential use in the setting of community tax preparation, asset building, tax policy, savings policy, and college access initiatives that are geared to low- to moderate-income individuals and families. Evaluation will also critique how well the session will expand the dialogue and breadth of knowledge of the field."
The attached document contains clear guidelines for submissions and all questions may be directed to NCTC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
