The American Institute of CPAs kicked off its 2011 Spring Meeting of Council on Sunday with a discussion of the Institute’s legislative priorities.

The conference, in Washington, D.C., brought together a group of CPAs from around the country. They plan to visit the offices of their congressional representatives on Tuesday, and several members of Congress are also participating in the conference. The music at the reception on Sunday evening was provided by the Second Amendments, a bipartisan group of musicians made up of current and former lawmakers. Scheduled speakers at the conference on Monday and Tuesday include House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., the new chair of the Democratic National Committee, along with several other influential lawmakers.
