Ronni Davidowitz, head of the firm's New York Trusts and Estates practice and ACTEC state chair for Downstate New York, will coordinate and host in New York City the ACTEC 2019 Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting, which brings together ACTEC fellows primarily from the Mid-Atlantic member states and sponsors from all over for CLE programs, discussions and business and social networking, on September 13–15. In addition, she will participate in the State Chairs Roundtable at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 13 to join in a discussion comparing the Mid-Atlantic states gift and estate tax regimes and income tax treatment of trusts.
