Diane Lim, chief economist of The Concord Coalition, became president of the National Tax Association for the coming year at the NTA’s annual conference last week in Providence, R.I.

Founded in 1907, NTA is the leading organization of tax professionals dedicated to advancing the understanding of the theory and practice of public finance. It has a diverse membership of government, corporate, academic and independent tax professionals.

Lim (formerly Rogers) writes frequently on a variety of fiscal and economic issues for Concord and is quoted by news organizations around the country. She also writes the Economist Mom blog (EconomistMom.com). She has served as a vice president of NTA for the past two years.

“The coming year will be a critical time for tax policy, so I am especially honored and thrilled to be serving as NTA president,” Lim said. “With taxes now such an essential part of the broader debates about fiscal and economic policy, if we can shine a bigger spotlight and hold up a larger megaphone to the collective wisdom of the NTA, I believe tax policy will be made better by it.”
