Greetings Indianapolis Chapter Members,
While we are seeing the successful introduction of COVID-19 vaccinations and re-openings of local Indianapolis area businesses, the IMA Global organization is currently taken the stance of caution and have continued to restrict events to a virtual basis - we are awaiting some additional guidance on when in person meetings will be sanctioned.
Throughout the past year the Indy Chapter has been able to hold several virtual events in lieu of meeting face to face. To build on past successes, we plan to continue with social events consisting of Zoom Happy Hours and CMA Study Sessions and are now able to offer CPE sessions leveraging the IMA Global webinar platform.
We held our first virtual CPE event in April - an Introduction to Tableau session with one of our long-serving board members, Victoria Smith as the SME. The session highlighted some of the important aspects of business analytics & data visualization, a timely topic as management accountants continue to evolve as critical business partners within their organizations.
As we continue throughout the year, we’d like to extend an open invitation to join the monthly chapter board meetings. Any member interested in making an impact, big or small, within the local Finance/Accounting community is welcomed. It’s a great starting point for anyone interested in serving the IMA locally, regionally and even on a global basis.
Yours In Service,
-IMA Indy Chapter Board Members
