President's Message

Welcome to the IMA Florida Council!

It is without a doubt that our 2017-2018 year will be remembered as one of unforeseen challenges and of special accomplishments.

Many of our members and Chapters were significantly affected by the hurricanes which ran through our areas and impacted all of us one way or another.  Your Council Board members and I extend our heartfelt wishes for everyone’s full recovery.

During our first six months of operations we launched a new scholarship drive in memory of our dear friend and IMA champion Steve Christie of the Tampa Bay Chapter, which will be awarded in 2018, and sponsored our first presentation to the Florida Association of Accounting Educators (FAAE) at their 2017 annual conference.  We are excited to begin what we hope will be a long term opportunity to communicate IMA’s value to accounting educators of many of Florida’s colleges and universities through continued interaction with FAAE.

Your Council leaders are eager to hear from Chapter members who are interested in contributing their talents to invigorate both fellow professionals and aspiring students on a regional basis.  Please reach us through the Contact Us page on this site.

Best wishes for your continued success!

David Branson, CMA

IMA Florida Council President 2017-2018
