IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) will celebrate its 100-year Anniversary in 2019, and as we look to the future, we invite you to help us celebrate the past.

This month, we’re launching a social media effort to gather member stories of what it means to be part of IMA. Over the next year, we’ll be asking a series of questions on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and asking you to submit your personal observations and recollections. It doesn’t have to be long – one or two sentences will do. Also feel free to post videos or photos as well.

We invite you to share, on your own personal social media channels using the hashtag #IMA100Years, on any of the following topics:

  • Why you’re proud to be an IMA member.
  • Your best memory as an IMA Conference participant.
  • How IMA has supported your career.

We’ll be announcing these topics – and others – on our social media channels and will be using the content we receive from you to create a special 100-year website. As part of this effort, we’ll also be sharing the history of IMA and key highlights of our 100-year journey on our social media as well.

For questions or more information about submitting your stories on social media, please contact Morgan Del Rio, IMA marketing and social media manager, at

If you’d like to submit a longer, more in-depth story, IMA’s flagship magazine, Strategic Finance, is seeking submissions from members on their favorite personal experiences with IMA or how the profession has changed over the years. Contact Editor-in-Chief Kathy Williams at for more information or to share your IMA story.

IMA’s 100-year celebration will kick off at our Annual Conference & Expo (ACE2018) in Indianapolis this June. It will culminate at our Annual Conference & Expo in San Diego in June 2019. Don’t miss either one!
