The Standards for Excellence Institute is pleased to announce that its Director, Amy Coates Madsen, has been appointed to the Internal Revenue Service’s Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities (ACT).
Amy officially joined the ACT Panel on June 11, 2014. She was one of two appointees to the exempt organizations sub-committee. The ACT includes external stakeholders and representatives who deal with employee retirement plans; tax-exempt organizations; tax-exempt bonds; federal, state, local and Indian tribal governments. ACT members are appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury and generally serve two-year terms. They advise the IRS on operational policy and procedural improvements.
“I am honored to be selected to be a part of the ACT and am excited for the opportunity to provide input to the IRS, particularly sharing the perspective of small and medium sized organizations,” says Ms. Coates Madsen.
The ACT was established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act to provide an organized public forum for discussion of relevant issues affecting the tax exempt and government entities communities.
Greg Cantori, CEO of the Standards for Excellence Institute comments “Ms. Coates Madsen’s expertise in nonprofit governance and best-practices is immense. Her appointment will no doubt provide a wealth of knowledge to this important panel of experts in the area of tax-exempt organizations.”
