President's Message
As I write this I have just returned from a week of sunshine, heat, and learning in Orlando Florida at the National Conference of NATP. Those of you who did not attend missed a great week. The classes and instructors were top notch while the accommodations and food were second to none. The week kicked off Sunday evening when all Pennsylvania members were invited to a social gathering at the Pool Bar where old friendships were renewed and new friendships and business contacts were formed. Also, everyone had the opportunity to meet and talk with Kathy Stanik, the CEO of NATP as well as several Directors of the National Board. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Denise Brandt, Erica Knight, and Kath Bowman who arranged this gathering and who also put together a great table at Chapter Showcase. Great job guys! Also, thanks to all the other members who lent a hand to make these events a success. Patti Shrader Blum

Be sure to mark your calendars and join us for the next two National Conferences: July 20-23, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Hilton Riverside and August 9-12, 2016 in Indianapolis, Indiana at the JW Marriott. Believe me when I say that if you attend a National Conference you'll be hooked and never want to miss another.

As a child I used to think it was strange when adults talked about how fast time went by. It seemed to me to take forever for the different seasons to pass. We waited for what felt like an eternity for Christmas to come anticipating the tree, Santa and of course the gifts. But now the seasons just fly by. Summer is rapidly coming to an end and the fall (when our thoughts turn to cool weather and tax updates) will once again be upon us.

Speaking of education, your State Chapter has been working very hard to bring you quality education on Federal, State, and Local topics. On September 17th we will hold a seminar in Cranberry Township at the Regional Alliance Learning Center. Melinda Garvin, an NATP instructor will present education on Subchapter S Corporations. Later that evening a Board of Directors meeting will be held and of course all members are welcome to attend. The following day is the "Working Together" seminar presented by the IRS, PA Department of Revenue, and a number of tax professional organizations including your own PA-NATP. Why not attend both of these educational events and receive up to 16 hrs of CPE?

Back by popular demand on Wednesday, October 1st is the famous RCT-101 class in Lancaster. This is always a great learning experience and the class fills up fast so be sure to register early. November will be here before we know it and with it comes our Chapter's Annual Conference on November 6th and 7th in New Cumberland, PA. This is your best opportunity to learn about PA taxes and to hear the PA Updates from David Braden, CPA and Assistant to the Director of the Department of Revenue. A Board of Directors meeting will be held on the evening of Wednesday November 5th; again, members are welcome to attend.

Finally, a very big Thank You goes to 1st Vice President and Education Chair, Patricia Turner, EA for all the hard work she has done in putting together these great seminars.

Hope to see you all at our upcoming events.

Patti Schrader Blum
PA-NATP President
