Young IFA Network (YIN)
The Young IFA Network continues to grow. In 2015 the YIN Committee has taken new initiatives to enhance the participation of YIN members in various IFA activities and to expand the reach of YIN amongst young professionals at various Branch levels. At the Mumbai meeting of the Executive Committee in October 2014, the Chair of the YIN Committee, Kristine Ilstad, presented a summary of all YIN activities and the plans for the future. These include further strengthening the YIN communication infrastructure and establishing a good network amongst the YIN Representatives. With thanks to the past and present YIN Committee, YIN is growing in size as well as in activities. 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.

At the 2015 Basel 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 theses of the Mitchell B. Carroll and Maurice Lauré Prizes 2015 and a moot court; a special meeting for the YIN Representatives of each IFA Branch; the YIN Fun Run and a dynamic YIN party on the Wednesday evening.
