President's Message

It is hard to believe it but we will be wrapping up our IMA season next Tuesday, May 15!  Although the time has flown by, we had a spectacular year.  To recap some of the highlights, our chapter: returned to the Engineer’s Club in style after a twenty year absence, hosted a very well-attended Student Night and were able to book IMA’s global chair to speak to the chapter and young professionals, co-sponsored an Investment Symposium with Morgan Stanley, raised money for the Dayton Food Bank, and offered 20 hours of quality CPE from speakers on a wide variety of tax, accounting, legislation, safety, contract management, entrepreneurship and updates from local leaders doing great things for the Dayton area.

 I hope you are able to attend the May session as we will have two great presentations on healthcare topics.  To start off the evening, Beth Handwerker will be providing an overview of “Healthcare in Retirement”.  After dinner, we will hear from Valerie Bogdan-Powers on Healthcare Analytics and recent updates to national and state healthcare laws.  You will not want to miss these topics as they are evergreen and ever-changing.

 It has been a great learning experience for me to preside over this chapter.  I am proud of what we were able to accomplish, and I look forward to serving the chapter differently in the future!  I would be remiss if I did not mention that all of this is possible because of our hard-working, volunteer Board Members.  Our board and members are what makes IMA a fun and engaging activity!
