IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) is a mission-driven organization that couldn’t exist without the time, talent, and expertise of volunteers. IMA welcomes active members, from a variety of career levels and diverse backgrounds, to give volunteer service. Some of these opportunities require multi-year commitments while others require just a few hours of time. Visit the Volunteering with IMA webpage to learn more.
