The 2023 AARO delegation was composed of board members Laura Snyder (Tax), Paul Atkinson (Banking) and Fred Einbinder (VP Advocacy), and President Doris Speer, who were joined by long-time OAW team member, Johanna Dishongh, representing our partner FAWCO.

The OAW team had 60 meetings during the week with Congressional offices, government agencies, including the State Department, the IRS National Taxpayer Advocate and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, as well as other associations and experts. Highlights of the 2023 OAW included the innovative use of the Dear 535 Campaign comments from constituents of each Congressional office.
