In late April, she attended RPTE’s Spring Symposia, where she chaired a panel on “International Philanthropy and Your Clients: Rules to Give By.”

While in Washington, D.C., Allison also participated in informal discussions with U.S. Treasury representatives about forthcoming regulations in the charitable arena, including those governing donor advised funds and appraisals of non-cash charitable contributions.
