The annual Arkansas Tax Conference has been canceled for 2020.
Every year, the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce/Associated Industries of Arkansas hosts the conference to provide a comprehensive look at Arkansas’ tax landscape and developments in the industry. The conference attracts experts from around the state, and the Arkansas State Chamber brings its own administrators, in-house experts and others to participate.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the state chamber elected to cancel the event. On its website, the chamber cited the impact that COVID-19 had had on local businesses as a reason for postponing the event until 2021.
This year’s conference had been scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 7 at the Statehouse Center in Little Rock. However, there was also a virtual option planned; this option would not provide CPE/CLE credits for attendees.
“While we are disappointed that this year’s event will not occur, we anticipate a robust and insightful Tax Conference next fall in 2021 and hope to draw a significant number of attendees as in past years,” the chamber wrote in an email.
