"I value the amazing opportunity to meet with other professional who are facing the same issues as I am. Some of them have asked and answered the questions that I am just beginning to realize I have. It is great to learn from others challenges and see what routes they have taken to get where they are now. It was an opportunity to ask questions that I have to an impartial audience."

Tax Reform Updates

NBOA

NBOA is working to update members about the pending tax reform legislation as well as to advocate for the best interest of independent schools, given that many provisions in the House and Senate bills could negatively impact our industry. Visit NetAssets.org for more information about the proposed legislation and the joint responses sent to Congress from NBOA and NAIS on behalf of the independent school community. Schools are urged to contact their representatives.
