Alumni and students of Kogod's MS in Taxation program and members of the local tax community gathered on Sept. 20 to network and reconnect.
More than 80 attendees enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at a reception held at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, MD. Many knew each other from when they attended Kogod and have kept in touch since graduation.
The evening's speakers, Professor Donald Williamson, Executive Director of the Tax Center, and Dean Michael Ginzberg, highlighted the continued success of the Taxation program.
"The MST program continues to get stronger everyday, especially with the opening of the Tax Center—the only one of its kind in the country," said Williamson. "I'm proud to introduce Dean Ginzberg to current students and graduates of Kogod's Taxation Program."
Williamson reached his 25th year as a Kogod faculty member last week. His many contributions and accomplishments were celebrated at the event.
On behalf of Watkins Meegan LLC, Bruce Hall, MST '88, and Tom Greenawalt sponsored the reception.
The next targeted event for accounting and taxation is Tuesday, October 4, at 6 p.m. in MGC 2. Dr. Howard M. Schilit will present the First Annual Lecture On Fraud And Forensic Accounting: How to Detect Accounting Gimmicks and Fraud in Financial Reports.
