Tonight ACCA and IMA are hosting the first "official" joint chapter event in New York City with over 100 people in attendance, featuring ACCA CEO Helen Brand and FAF CEO Terri Polley (the Financial Accounting Foundation provides oversight to the FASB).
Successful partnerships are all about the relationship, shared values, inspired visions. ACCA is one of the most respected and influential accounting associations in the world (with over 600,000 members and candidates). ACCA and IMA signed a significant strategic partnership last June, and we continue to produce differentiated thought leadership, research and products which advance organizational capability and the profession.
Great partnership outcomes result from shared values and as I mentioned, ACCA and IMA share values of inclusivity and service to the profession. Expect even more as our valued members from this partnership.
