May 6, 2022

Recruiting pro bono volunteers is challenging, especially during the pandemic. Yet many Low Income Tax Clinics rely on pro bono attorneys in order to assist as many taxpayers as possible.  Join the May Gardenside chat, which will focus on how to build a pro bono panel, including where to recruit pro bono assistance, effective recruitment pitches, and how to retain volunteers. Panelists will also discuss the new LITC Connect from the Center for Taxpayer Rights, a “dating app” that connects LITCs with tax professionals interested in volunteering with LITCs.  The session is free for all attendees. Note that CLE/CPE will not be provided.
