To help celebrate our 10th anniversary, we have invited back many of the advisors who, over the years, have participated in our program. Each will highlight one or two significant developments in their respective countries. We are pleased that advisors from India, United Kingdom, Ireland, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, France, China and Brazil can join us. In addition, we will provide U.S. international, employee benefits and compensation and state tax updates throughout the day.
