President's Message

Welcome to the San Diego Chapter of IMA! 

Don't miss our next meeting - four- CPE event with the Wild West Council on August 17th.  We will be meeting at the National University Academic Headquarters in La Jolla.  Take a half-day off work and learn about the current status of tax law changes, the impact of changes to foreign trade policies and the lighter side of cyber security.  This session will be a great opportunity to network with management accountants from across the southwest region.

Chapter members are also welcome to attend the other Wild West Council events over the weekend, including group dinners, the Council business meeting and a tour of the Flying Leathernecks museum at Miramar.  There is always a lot of useful information and fun at these meetings - join us!  Sign up on our "Events" page.

Please provide me any input or suggestions you have about the best ways our chapter can meet your needs.  I'm open to your thoughts on our meeting venue, meeting days and times, speaker topics and other networking opportunities.  You can contact me through LinkUp IMA or through the San Diego Chapter email address

We need your help with some key openings in the chapter leadership.  We're looking for folks to help out with lining up interesting speakers for our technical meetings, maintain our website and social media presence, There’s still time to volunteer to help us in the coming year.  Volunteering can be a satisfying way to give back to the IMA and our profession and offers awesome networking benefits.  Our Chapter website gives more details at

Hope to see you at a Chapter event soon!
