Message from the President

We’re about halfway through this summer already (if you can call the combination of rain and unbearably humid days “summer”) and I’m sure you’re going through IMA withdrawal! Don’t worry, we’re only two months away from our monthly Technical Sessions resuming. But in the meantime, let me remind you of a couple of the vast resources that are available to IMA members all year:

Strategic Finance – IMA’s relevant and insightful monthly publication will fill the gap between our live local tech sessions with popular issues, like the popular Annual Salary survey, and will also provide you opportunities to gain a couple hours of CPE by reading articles and completing a final assessment on line.

Moments that Matter – IMA’s blog that covers the softer side of accounting with perspectives on topics that will help round out your professional development with posts on impactful public speaking, debunking accounting myths, and maximizing your experience at conferences. Just go to

Don’t stop there! Go explore for yourself and see the many other resource that are available in print, pictures, and video.

Jesse Allison, CPA, President
