Every spring, the organization holds an annual congress where it considers important international tax law issues. This fall, Blank will co-author, with Ruth Mason of the University of Virginia Law School, a national report on exchange of tax information and tax cooperation between countries.

As the U.S. national reporter, Blank will present the U.S. report at the annual congress at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey in May 2014. The event will feature participation by tax scholars from over 30 other jurisdictions.
