Welcome to Louisville Chapter IMA - Who are we?
As an individual who has been a Board Member of the Louisville IMA Chapter and has seen this chapter board go through many changes over the years, it was brought to my attention that the board has fallen into the trap of "assuming people know who we are". Not only has the board changed over the years, but so has our membership.
To be honest when I was told this, I was very surprised, I mean over the past 4 years I have been sending out emails to our membership letting them know that we are putting on CPE, offering Mentorship to students, sending out calls for professionals to speak to students, trying to get engagement when we have social events, stating that we need Volunteers for the following Board Positions, and as I was going through this list, that’s when it hits me.
They are 100% right, we as a board assumed that people knew who the Louisville IMA Chapter is, and why not only would it be good for us, but also for our membership to get involved, as a Board member, a member who volunteered or just attended our events. They are not aware how doing so would be beneficial for their community or professional development.
So, for the IMA Year – July 2021 to June 2022, our Board is going to focus on better communicating on who & what the Louisville IMA Chapter is for its community.
The Louisville IMA Chapter is made up of Professionals & Students who lives or works in Louisville, KY, New Albany, IN, Clarksville, IN & Jeffersonville, IN area, who are members of the Global Professional Organization: Institute of Management Accountants (IMA).
The Louisville IMA Chapter is a local resource for IMA Members to attend professional Educational Events (CPE), gain leadership, obtain mentorship and a community of professionals and students who have an interest in Management Accounting within their industry, from Farming to manufacturing to teaching.
To better grow as a chapter, please feel free to email us at email@example.com or message me on LinkedIn with any idea or recommendations on how our Chapter can improve from your perspective.
Looking forwards to growing,
Savannah Camp, MSBIA, CMA, MBA (she/her)
President of the Louisville IMA Chapter
