President's Message


Welcome to the San Diego Chapter of IMA

It is an honor to be elected President for the 2021/2022 year. Thank-you to David Villasenor for his service over the past year and for his outstanding work on the Controllers Council lunches which we look forward to continuing this year (with David’s support). I would also like to give an enthusiastic thank-you to Pem Smith who has provided a tremendous amount of time and effort volunteering in different roles over the years for our Chapter and to all of the other volunteers who have stepped up to serve alongside me.
This year we are focused on continuing to provide educational opportunities (like the Controllers Council) and outreach opportunities (like Student Night) as well as to hopefully start having some in-person activities as soon as it is safe and practicable to do so.
We hope that you will join us in some, or all, of our activities.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have suggestions, questions, comments, or want to volunteer!
I look forward to a great year with you all.

Richard Schaper
Chapter President
