Young IFA Network (YIN)
YIN: A Growing IFA Community
The Young IFA Network continues to grow. Each year, the YIN Committee takes new initiatives to enhance the participation of YIN members in various IFA activities and to expand the reach of YIN among young professionals at the various IFA levels. These include further strengthening the YIN communication infrastructure and establishing a good network amongst the YIN Representatives. IFA's Executive Committee is very pleased with this development and wishes to encourage the participation of young international tax practitioners and academics in IFA worldwide.
The use of information and communication technology
The YIN website has been integrated into the IFA website in order to facilitate access to relevant information about the YIN organization and world-wide activities, the YIN Awards and YIN Contact Persons at both central and local level. By logging into the website you can access recorded YIN webinars covering various topics related to international tax and more. The YIN facebook page, Young IFA Network – YIN – Official has been launched to provide you with information on YIN events as well.
YIN at the Annual IFA Congress
At the 2016 Madrid Congress again several YIN events have been taken place: the traditional Meet & Greet reception for YIN Members and IFA Members attending their first Congress; a very interesting YIN Seminar featuring the winning thesis of the Mitchell B. Carroll Prize 2016 and a moot court; a special meeting for the YIN Representatives of each IFA Branch and a dynamic YIN party on the Wednesday evening.
YIN in the Branches
The number of Branches that have successfully launched YIN programmes is growing steadily. Initiatives to organize low-threshold scientific meetings in many countries have proven to be successful in attracting young tax professionals to IFA. The Branches play a significant role in this undertaking, and we call upon Branches who have not yet organized YIN programmes to appoint a YIN Representative and to become active as well. A growing Young IFA Network is essential for IFA’s future!
