Enrolled Agent to be Included in Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary!

May 15, 2012

The power of membership! In a stunning example of what individual EAs can do to promote the designation, the requests to Merriam-Webster that enrolled agent be included in the dictionary have resulted in this response: “I am happy to tell you that we agree with you and that enrolled agent is on a list of entries to be included as part of our work on a new Merriam-Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary.”

Thanks to all the NAEA members who answered the call in E@lert and wrote to Webster’s requesting the inclusion, and special thanks to NAEA President Frank Degen, EA for focusing attention on this issue.

This is just another step forward in our quest to make enrolled agent a household term. It’s an exciting time! Working together, we’re going to make 2012 the Year of the EA!
