The ABA is committed to serving their members, improving the legal profession, eliminating bias and enhancing diversity, and advancing the rule of law throughout the United States and around the world. Their mission is to equally serve their members, profession and the public by defending liberty and delivering justice as the national representative of the legal profession.

The Institute for Professionals in Taxation (IPT) is a 501(c) (3) non-profit educational association serving over 4100 members representing approximately 1450 corporations, firms, or taxpayers throughout the United States and Canada. It is the only professional organization that educates, certifies and establishes strict codes of conduct for state and local income, property and sales & use tax professionals who represent taxpayers.

The ABA/IPT Advanced Tax Seminars are designed for individuals interested in state and local income, sales, use, and ad valorem taxation. Over the course of three seminars, a distinguished and multidisciplinary faculty will lead participants in a practical examination of current state and local tax issues facing different businesses/industries. The ABA/IPT Advanced Tax Seminars take places March 19-23, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in New Orleans.
