An example of the MICPA’s commitment to continually advance relationships with elected officials statewide, the Association created an opportunity for its members to network with nine area legislators on Thursday, Oct. 22 in Grand Rapids. The tremendously successful event drew praise from members and legislators alike.

“The MICPA has been very fortunate to forge such strong relationships with many of the legislators who were in the room,” said Dennis Echelbarger, a past MICPA chair of the board and current member of the Legislative Advisory Group. “We’ve made significant headway on issues important to CPAs and to the state, and an event such as this one builds pathways to continuing that good work.”

“It’s not often that groups come together to host legislators like this,” said Representative Chris Afendoulis, of the 73rd District near Grand Rapids. “Since my election into the Michigan House of Representatives, I’ve put a strong emphasis on working collaboratively with groups like the MICPA to further our great state’s comeback.”

Attorneys from the State Bar Taxation Section and members of the Michigan Women’s Tax Association also participated in the networking event.
