Our Controllers Council speaker will be Tom Daugherty from Klinedinst PC Law Firm.  From Mr. Daugherty’s Executive Biography: "Particularly in employment law, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Seemingly small violations can quickly turn into major headaches, including individual litigation and class action lawsuits. To avoid these problems, Mr. Daugherty regularly counsels employers on best practices, policies, and multifaceted human resources issues. He keeps clients up to date on new developments in California and federal employment law, from wage and hour issues to discrimination and retaliation protections.”

Around IMA

  • IMA celebrates the 50th anniversary of the CMA certification. The year was 1972, the month was December. In 22 select locations across the U.S., accounting professionals sat down for the first time to take an exam to test their knowledge of key accounting and finance concepts, the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant). This year, 2022, marks the 50th anniversary of the exam that transformed the profession and, in many ways, the lives of those who earned it.  For details go to the IMA website.
  • Also on the website, you can see the large number of free CPE opportunities available to members. Click the Education Center link.
  • Mark your calendars for the IMA 2022 Annual Conference and Exposition at the JW Marriott Hotel in Austin, TX. Live and virtual options will be available.  Registration opens March
