ATRA Chairman Lyn White presents Keely Hitt with the 2013 Outstanding Member award at the Outlook Conference luncheon. Heidi Schaefer shared in the distinction and was presented with the same award.
During last year’s event, Keely Hitt was described as a “rising star” and ATRA completely agrees with that assessment. As the Senior Tax Manager for Circle K Stores, Keely Hitt has placed a very important role in assisting ATRA’s advocacy for sound fiscal policy in Arizona. Keely is a member of the ATRA Board of Directors, the Executive Committee, and a regular at both the Tax and Legislative Policy Committees.
