The Rogerson Law Group announced that Angela I. Salvatore has assumed the position of chair of the Ontario Bar Association’s Taxation Law Section.

The firm’s press release notes that Salvatore is the first female chair of the Taxation Law Section. This will be her fifth year serving on the Section Executive. The appointment began on July 1 and will last for one year. It was announced at the section’s annual general meeting and awards presentation on June 26, 2020.

“I am honoured to hold this position, especially as I am the first woman to do so,” said Salvatore. “I’m proud of the amazing work we’ve done over the past four years and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with our excellent team on planning more programs and working towards my goal of building a closer connection with our industry colleagues at the Canadian Tax Foundation, International Fiscal Association (Canada), Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) Canada and the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.

“My hope is that our section can work with accountants, trustees and other practitioners to collaborate on events with networking opportunities, with the end goal of enhancing the services we offer to taxpayers,” she said.

Prior to being named chair, Salvatore served as vice-chair and has used her knowledge and experience to help organize and plan numerous professional development programs for the section.

“Over the past few months, OBA members have benefited from the knowledge and resourcefulness of our leadership team and our 40 sections to continue practising effectively within a rapidly evolving justice sector,” said Ontario Bar Association president, Colin Stevenson. “Our members have risen to these many challenges, and I’m excited to see what our new section executives can do to continue to improve the legal profession, practice areas and the justice system.”
