Professional Educational Programs
Professional Educational Programs combine education, networking, and social activities to help members stay current with the latest in management accounting—and earn NASBA-approved CPE credits. Organized and attended by members at a local level, the meetings feature presentations by local speakers who can tailor topics according to group needs. The smaller size of the meetings allows for a free flow of ideas, and peer discussions further foster knowledge exchange.

Networking Activities
Networking is an excellent opportunity to make new friends and business contacts and socialize with peers in a relaxed atmosphere. An informal setting can create the right context for mutual help—one person’s experience may answer another’s problem and vice versa—and give members more exposure to different areas of accounting. 

Leadership Training
Called “the best management training,” leadership activities are open to all members. Serving on a chapter board is an especially good way to experience every phase of management.

Mentorship Initiatives
Mentoring is a valuable way to inspire and support the next generation of management accountants. By building in-depth relationships with young professionals and students, members can provide seasoned guidance for those aspiring toward the same career path.

Community Service Programs
Community service programs provide the chance to engage in skills-based and civic-service volunteering. Projects range from consulting for new and growing small businesses to beautification efforts and donor drives in local communities. These programs offer members a way to contribute in an organized and effective manner while developing their own management skills.

Speakers Bureau
IMA’s Speakers Bureau helps connect IMA members with conference and event planners. These voluntary speakers can keynote, moderate, or participate on panels and roundtables at finance and accounting-related events.  To learn more, visit the Speakers Bureau on LinkUp IMA
