President's Message

It seems like time continues to pass by quickly and that the holiday season is rapidly approaching.  We are thankful to have the opportunity to support the IMA members in the Dayton and Miami Valley area.  We are always looking for new ideas for programming and events, so if you have a suggestion, please share that with myself or any other chapter board member.  We had some great discussion at the October dinner meeting regarding the important role that we, as accounting and finance professionals, play in making strategic sourcing decisions.

At this month’s dinner meeting, we welcome Josh Campbell from Bradstreet & Company who will give the annual State and Local Tax Update.  After dinner, I will have the pleasure of presenting one of IMA’s Leadership Academy presentations: Creative a Bias Free Workplace.  I have been a member of IMA’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee for several years and this is an important topic that we can take back to the organizations in which we are involved. 

SPECIAL EVENTS – We have two special events coming up in the next months.  In December, we will be hosting our annual Holiday Social.  We will be headed back to Carrilon Brewing.  We hope you can join us for some complimentary refreshments and just enjoy each others company.  In January (1/28/20), we are pleased to be hosting another Symposium of Investment Advisors.  We are working with Morgan Stanley to bring three advisors to come in to provide information about the investment market which will be useful for improving your organizations and your personal finances

We thank you as members and hope to see you at the November meeting!
