Your Role in a Nutshell
As campus advocates you are investing in the future of your students as well as the sustainability, relevancy, and continuing development of the accounting curriculum.
Each year our advocates fulfill their obligations by:
1. Receiving and disseminating IMA/CMA marketing materials.
2. Promoting IMA benefits, student membership, the formation of student chapters, and the CMA credential.
3. Inviting managerial finance and accounting practitioners to speak on campus.
4. Leveraging IMA resources to advance the relevancy of the accounting curriculum.
