I'm penning this column in a Washington, DC hotel following the first full day of the American Institute of CPAs' Spring Council meeting.

Although I've written about the profession for nearly seven years, this is my first Council meeting. So far it's been a lot of fun meeting people I'd only talked to on the phone, and introducing myself to state society leaders, board members and garden variety council members from places like Montana, Wisconsin and Washington state. Aside from the Institute business being conducted which will make its way into the newswire and our other publications, Council meetings offer a rare opportunity to hobnob with a cross-section of AICPA members as well as gain me an audience with the profession's past, present and future leaders.
