Virtual attendees can explore 21 live-streamed Specialty Track sessions, as well as all six keynote sessions.

The nine Specialty Tracks are: Accounting Hot Topics; Technology and Analytics; Strategy, Planning, and Performance; Leadership and Professional Development; Reporting and Control; Business Acumen and Operations; Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprises; Ethics; and Academic.

“We’re excited to offer our members this hybrid learning experience, which allows individuals to customize their Conference learning and to select the format that best suits their specific circumstances,” said Jackie Oppenheim, CAE, CPLP, vice president, IMA Education & Career Services. “We encourage all those who can to join us for the in-person event, which will provide the most complete experience, but we also hope those who need to join us virtually will take advantage of that option as well."
