President's Message

I am honored to serve as your President of the Charlotte Chapter this year.  We are fortunate to have a great Board of Directors that have committed to do their best to provide you with informative and interesting technical meetings, quality continuing professional education, and a positive environment to network with other members and guests.

All of us on the IMA Charlotte Chapter Board are committed to assisting individual Members. Whether you are an existing member or a new member, I urge you to take an active role in the IMA:

  • Use our website resources and IMA webinars.
  • Remain or get active in our local IMA chapter.
  • Register for our next meeting via the reservations page.
  • Invite a college student or a colleague to a meeting.
  • The Council also has four Board meetings a year and you are invited to attend any or all of them.


The IMA Charlotte Chapter is proud to announce the launch of our newly designed website. The new website has a modern layout and design. It provides an easier and user friendly way for members to browse content and find useful information about the IMA Charlotte Chapter and IMA Global.

The new website is better organized and will help members stay informed on upcoming Chapter dinners and networking events.

We will be making additional changes and updates to the website over the coming weeks. Stay tuned and be sure to visit the website often as we continue to build out the website for a better user experience.

If you have any questions about the IMA, the Charlotte Chapter or our new website please contact me.
