President's Message

Hello and Welcome!

I am so excited for the 2019-2020 year with the Columbia Chapter of the IMA.  I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces from the last few years, and hoping to see new faces
as well to increase our membership and attendance.

I’ve been speaking with incredible accounting and finance professionals in the marketplace to recruit them to not only join the IMA, but to sit on our board. Many of these individuals
have been very receptive and are excited for the challenge of growing our membership base and meeting attendees.

We are focused on providing to our attendees interesting, relevant, and useful CPE topics.  We have an incredible line-up of speakers for the year and would love to go ahead and start
reserving speakers for the 2020-2021 year.  Your input and feedback is extremely helpful in guiding us towards the appropriate speakers and topics for our monthly meetings.

Our goal is to not only provide a comfortable and pleasant learning environment for everyone, but to also foster relationship building and professional networking opportunities. We want
you to find a mentor/mentee, trusted confidant, or a business acquaintance with whom to share ideas and challenges. These meetings are for you – our members and attendees –
and we want you to get every benefit out of your IMA experience.

I am always interested in hearing feedback and thoughts from the chapter, so please feel free to contact me directly at any time.

We appreciate your support and interest!
