President's Message

A Message from your Chapter President, Chris Boike, CMA, CPA


Dear Fellow IMA Members and Guests,

I want to say a very big “thank you!” to all the volunteers who have worked hard to keep this chapter moving forward. The last several terms have been quite challenging; our mission is focused on in person connections with our members, and we have
missed those in-person events. Despite the challenges, our volunteers have worked to bring quality virtual CPE and some virtual networking events to you over the past several terms. This group of volunteers has been resilient and adaptable as we all deal with the COVID challenges. It appears we are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Coming up in June, IMA is hosting the in person global Accounting and Finance Conference here in the state of Texas! This conference will be held June 12-15th in Austin, and you can find details at IMA is taking the health and safety of members and attendees quite
seriously, so please visit the website for more information on the requirements for attendees, which include proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 and masking. We are actively completing our volunteer board for the ’22-’23 terms – if you are interested in volunteering, it is not too late! Please reach out to me at to let us know that you are interested in the next week or two. We normally recess our CPE and networking events for summer, and since the Global Conference is right around the corner, we are going to recess a bit early this year. We look forward to seeing all of you again when we come back
(hopefully in person!) with CPE and networking events in August. Thank you again to our great volunteers and members – I
appreciate all you do!

Chapter President (2021 – 2022)
