President's Message

Hello everyone- Spring 2023 is here! 

The Alaska Chapter of the IMA is continuing to navigate the business and interactive paradigms that have changed how we communicate and interact.  Though we are fine-tuning how to host our activities in a virtual/in-person/hybrid work, we expect that in the near future we will have a robust calendar of events that your AK IMA will be bringing forward!

Key goals & initiatives we are grappling with are:

  • Using social media to create awareness
  • Integrating technology to increase membership reach, participation and broaden the Alaska IMA community
  • Cultivating, developing and mentoring emerging Accounting professionals, including valuable scholarships
  • Above all, creating a forum, platform and community for current and aspiring Accounting professionals to connect, socialize and get involved.

Happy New Year here in 2023!…..and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming CPE sessions or social events (virtual and possibly in-person).

One last thing…..the Alaska IMA will have some openings on its board for the upcoming fiscal year, which starts late this spring/early summer.  If you would like to get involved with a fun, friendly group of volunteers please reach out to me personally!
