President's Message


If you could go back in time, what would be the one thing you would change in your past? If I told you that you had already done so, would that change your approach to life? Every action taken from this point forward directly impacts our future and can shape the foundation of our success. If we can recognize the structure of our surroundings then we can take advantage of the opportunities that lay within and take control of our career. Life is too short to attempt without preparing a strategy for developing strengths, mitigating weaknesses, capitalizing on opportunities so why wait for life to come to us? The passion may exist to be intentional and deliberate with our life and career but we need a catalyst to sharpen the skills and knowledge needed for this endeavor. There is no better place to begin or continue this journey than through the collaborative network within the IMA. The IMA separates itself from other business organizations by creatively developing access within professional communities and by providing the opportunity to earn the only finance and accounting certification specifically designed for strategic financial management focused on profitability. Our programs bridge networking and knowledge gaps within the business community through strategic partnerships designed to engage leaders and inspire solutions in a rapidly changing, global business environment. Let us be the decision that changes your future. Why not us and why not now? What's your strategy?

Thank you,

Orin Wilson

President, IMA - Arkansas Central Chapter
