President's Message

Thank you for the privilege to serve you as Des Moines Chapter President. Your Board of Directors has worked hard to insure that this year will be an outstanding year. We will

present to the chapter a series of technical meetings and tours that are informative, useful, and fun.

The chapter meetings are open to accounting, finance, information technology, and management professionals who want to learn about current topics of interest, learn networking skills, and develop teamwork and leadership skills. This takes place in an environment of encouragement and participation.

The Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) has grown to over 85,000 members worldwide, and has done so by providing Accounting and Finance professionals with great value. The Certified Management Accountant (CMA) certification has become the gold standard for Accounting and Finance professionals working inside of organizations. In addition, the IMA has added two new credentials to enhance members professional skills.

The Des Moines chapter of IMA serves members who are starting their careers, college students,college faculty, and established professionals. By your involvement, you insure that the chapter will evolve to meet member's needs in an environment of rapid change in our profession.

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
