Why You Should Attend ACE 2017 in Denver!
The IMA’s Annual Conference and Exposition is the one event where a member can see the full breath of the organization’s leadership, interests, and benefits.

Most of us begin our careers somewhat open-ended. Perhaps we are in a role, yet unsure what direction our work life will take during the ensuing decades. The IMA conference allows the younger member to hear from speakers with varied orientations and it has provided me insights I used during my business and personal life.

The rate of return both professionally and personally during my membership has been substantial and well above the costs I incurred to attend the conferences.

For current or aspiring CMAs, the conference is a chance to learn about the credential’s global value.

The exposition offers participants a chance to walk up and talk to firm representatives offering training or continuing education programs. There is no better place to develop one’s awareness of opportunities in the management accounting field.
