To be sure, the technological interface is changing as services such as LinkedIn, Plaxo, Facebook, and Twitter proliferate, but networking has long been a critically important part of every successful organization. Thus, Tax Executives Institute (TEI) is not unique among tax organizations in emphasizing the networking opportunities that members have. Based on more than a quarter century of observation, as a group, TEI members are more connected with one another than members of any other organization and the connections often extend beyond a discussion of arcane tax rules, of the best tax lawyers in this state or that, of experiences with a particular revenue agent, or of what potential job opportunities exist. Networking is not something that goes out of style, loses its value or vitality, or "skips a generation" as the demands of the 21st century workplace bear down. Its value is transcendent.
