In this article, the author reviews Tax Executives Institute's (TEI) accomplishments over the past year. One of TEI's principal goals this year has been to build a larger, more inclusive team of tax professionals throughout the world. The purpose was not growth for growth's sake, but rather to enrich the membership experience for ALL members by drawing more people into the TEI network. TEI has remained relevant and valuable to its members by listening to their ideas and concerns, adapting to changed conditions, and maintaining a commitment to excellence -- not only in connection with its educational programs, but in their advocacy work as well. TEI's Board of Directors adopted a Social Responsibility Plan that reaffirms the Institute's commitment to advancing important societal goals through an expanded scholarship program, a commitment to volunteerism, and targeted donations.
