Join fellow members one mile above sea level as you engage in dynamic educational opportunities and, equally important, unique networking events at ACE2017, IMA’s premier event, to be held in Denver, Colo., at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel on June 17-21. And if you think you’ve seen it all at an IMA Annual Conference, you’re in for a surprise with three new networking opportunities designed exclusively for attendees this year:

Beers with Peers: Beers, burgers, and banter are what you’ll find at this offsite networking event at Wynkoop Brewing Co. Connect with peers old and new in a casual, informal setting while you exchange ideas and enjoy food at this Denver microbrewery, ranked among the largest brewpubs in the world. (Additional fees apply)

Career Central: Take your career to new heights by visiting Career Central, located in the Solutions Showcase exhibit hall. This new offering features complimentary services to further your professional development, including one-on-one discussions with management accounting experts who will provide tips on career development and job-related questions; photographers ready to take your professional headshot; a LinkedIn expert; and IMA representatives sharing what’s new regarding certification and education opportunities. Sign-ups for the one-on-one services and/or the professional photographer can be done at the Career Central area within the Solutions Showcase.

Membership Mingle: Get to know IMA a little better between sessions at Membership Mingle. Learn about all the membership benefits that are available to you as you visit our information tables. Our knowledgeable team will be ready to discuss features and benefits such as continuing education, CMA® (Certified Management Accounting) certification, volunteer opportunities, and more.

You can also participate in other special events and networking opportunities such as:

  • Meet & Greet following the Annual Meeting of Members
  • Solutions Showcase & Networking Receptions
  • Management Accounting Roundtables Lunch
  • First-time Attendees Orientation

In addition to opportunities to make connections with peers and industry leaders, ACE2017 promises more than 65 educational sessions on a range of topics, including planning, budgeting, and forecasting; small business and M&A; ethics; technology; governance, risk management, and internal controls; leadership and professional development; and much more.
