President's Message

Summer is here fellow Rochester IMA members! And I think it is well deserved. This winter season has dragged on, and with endless winds and storms it seems that everyone is ready to put on their sunglasses and get out into the fresh air.

While we were stuck inside on May 8th we had a fantastic webinar presented by Erika McBride, CPA, Ed.D on the topic of Big Data. All of our webinars are free for chapter members, so I hope you took advantage of the free 1 credit of CPE. This interesting topic lent itself easily to a webinar and we were able to explore the data and how we can make interesting insights with it.

We have a few upcoming events that will help get you in the summer spirit.

On May 25th we will be recognizing all of those who have made the IMA a great organization. I hope that you have already signed up to have dinner with us at the Salvatore’s on East Ridge Road. More details on this event can be found here https://2017ima-awardsdinner.eventbrite.com

Then we will be taking the summer off to enjoy the sunshine. But not without a fun activity!!

We would like all of our members to join us at a Red Wings game during the month of August. We will be touring the stadium as well as seeing a game. And hopefully we will land on a night with fireworks. Please be on the lookout for emails about that event.
