Press release from: The RTP CFO Forum

RALEIGH, N.C. (May 26, 2011) — The RTP CFO Forum will hold its monthly meeting on Friday, June 3, 2011. The organization serves as a peer-to-peer networking and discussion opportunity for more than 200 senior financial executives in the Triangle area. The meeting will focus on international tax planning and transfer pricing documentation requirements.

Amy Smith, a senior tax manager at Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP (www.hpg.com), one of the largest CPA firms headquartered and staffed in the Research Triangle Park region of North Carolina, will discuss transfer pricing and international taxes.

Forum topics include:
