2016-2017 Program/Roster

In case you havenít been perusing our website, or havenít noticed that you didnít receive a hard copy of our program book, we would like to make you aware of an exciting technological leap forward that Canton IMA has made!

Board member Dylan Curtis, website designer Jacq Connect, and other board members have worked over the summer to create an electronic version of our program book available at

We believe this development will make our annual information and historical data more easily accessible to more people, members and otherwise, and after the initial investment, create a more easily maintained solution for our program book!

From the home page you can simply click on the Program/Roster menu option which will take you to an intuitive table of contents from which can check chapter history, awards, student chapter information, Canton chapter and Akron chapter events, board member contact information, member roster, our faithful advertisers and anything else you would have used the hard copy book for.

If you have any feedback or improvement opportunities after reviewing it, please don't hesitate to send me an email at
