President's Message

To my fellow members:

I was reminded this week of the value of having a mentor or trusted friend to help provide guidance and career advice. My daughter just started full-time in the accounting profession and she had asked what advice do you have for me as I start my career? I told her that there are some things that are important like building a network, learn as much as you can from others and one of the most important is to seek certification. Being certified in the profession is valuable, as it creates opportunities and demand for your skills. We all can benefit from being a CMA, so I would suggest to current and future members to seek certification and join the 100,000+ global professionals who list CMA behind their name already.

Our next meeting is on October 19th and we have a special guest from the Connecticut legislature, Representative Kerry Wood serving Rocky Hill, Newington, and Wethersfield. She will be discussing recent bills and what is on the horizon for Connecticut. Please join us for this informative session.

Academics and students take note – the IMA Student Leadership Conference will be Virtual this year. This provides a great opportunity for current members to attend this important career developing event for FREE! and Non members will also have access to an affordable discounted rate. Don’t miss out!! Registration is open right now. Academics… please encourage your students to join in!
