Join fellow IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) members to celebrate 100 years of history at next month’s Annual Conference & Expo (ACE2019), being held in San Diego on June 15-19. To honor IMA’s 100th Anniversary, we have some special networking events planned:

Centennial Celebration: Enjoy entertainment, food, and fun from around the world in honor of IMA’s thriving global community. Connect with friends new and old as you experience Chinese acrobatic dancers, Bollywood performances, flamenco dancers, and more.

Membership Mingle: Get to know IMA a little better and learn about the many membership benefits available to you, including continuing education, the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) and CSCA® (Certified in Strategy and Competitive Analysis) programs, volunteer opportunities, and more.

Peer-to-Peer Exchange Luncheon: Drive your own learning by connecting directly with people who understand the challenges you face. This interactive session enables you to exchange ideas in a relaxed environment, with discussion categories divided into ACE2019’s eight Specialty Tracks. A box lunch is included.

Tech Bar: Located inside the Solutions Showcase, visit the Tech Bar to discover answers to your personal technology and social media questions with help from tech-savvy experts.

Solutions Showcase and Networking Receptions: Learn about exciting new technology and solutions for management accountants while enjoying great food, drink, and a chance to win great prizes.

La Jolla Art and Wine Stroll: After the Conference officially ends, extend your stay a little longer. Join in a leisurely walk through a historic San Diego neighborhood while popping into art galleries for a presentation and wine tasting. Enjoy a three-wine tasting flight as a guide directs you. This stroll guides guests down to La Jolla Cove.

As part of this special anniversary celebration, IMA will also be sponsoring a raffle: All contributors (both past and present) of at least $100 to the Century Student Scholarship Fund will be eligible to enter a drawing to win a personal photo with the incomparable Jay Leno, our headline speaker. The deadline to donate is Friday, May 17.

“We’re delighted to offer attendees such a wide variety of networking options,” said LeighAnn Tobia, IMA conference and events manager. “We also want to extend a big thank you to Deloitte, our diamond-level sponsor for ACE2019. Their generous support has enabled us to provide an enhanced member experience this year. You don’t want to miss it!”
