The Graham Hill Award was established in recognition of the contribution made by Justice Graham Hill (a former President of the Taxation Institute of Australia) to improving revenue law in Australia. As such, the Award is presented each year to the person who is considered to have also made a significant contribution to improving revenue law in Australia. Michael D’Ascenzo, the Commissioner of Taxation, spoke at the presentation and congratulated Catherine on being a worthy recipient of the Award. He stated:
“I think that Graham would be pleased with the choices made by the Committee for this prestigious award given in his memory. It is given to those that have made a significant contribution to improving administration, policy, practice, teaching or understanding of revenue law in Australia."
