President's Message

A Message from your Chapter President, Lorna Winston-Blanks

Dear Chapter Members,

It has been said that great minds think alike.  That may be true. With diversity and inclusion added to the thought process, the outcome can be even better.  There is elevation to be discovered in combining the diversity of just about any identifiable faction of humanity.  Join in the activities of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) to see this combination routinely exemplified.  The Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Chapter invites you to join in our monthly events and we look forward to the opportunity to make you feel welcomed and included as well as worthy and important because that is how we see you.  You are a vital and valued part to the success of the accounting and finance profession.  Our volunteer leaders work toward the goal to ensure that the DFW IMA chapter provides high level continuing professional education, networking events, and awareness of the wealth of benefits of membership with the IMA at both the local and global levels.  The IMA is 100,000 members strong the world over.  Our membership is actively connected because at the IMA we understand the greater power of including diversity in great minds working together.  Regardless of how you or others may categorize you, we invite you to take a moment and review our events calendar, pick an event (one or many), come out and join us and we will look forward to seeing you soon.

Working Better Together,


Lorna Winston-Blanks, CPA, CGMA
