President's Message
"The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." - Phil Jackson
 
Next month, we will begin planning events and activities for the upcoming Chapter year and your input would be greatly appreciated. If you have ideas for events, speakers, or topics, please email me at president@imanationscapital.org. We are looking forward to innovative ways to help members continue making new connections and developing professionally.
 
Also, registration is now open for the virtual IMA Annual Conference and Expo on June 14-16, 2021. I hope you will attend and engage with expert practitioners, including Board member, Derek Fuzzell. He will be speaking on the topic, Cross-Cultural Communication: Understanding Common Communication Pitfalls in a Globalized World.

Remember to urge your colleagues to join IMA and our local chapter using the web site https://www.imanet.org/membership/benefits?ssopc=1 that describes many of the benefits you may wish to share. I also encourage you to inform students on how IMA membership enhances their resume and builds a great networking platform. You can share the information found at https://www.imanet.org/students/student-membership?ssopc=1
  
Also, as we look forward to next month’s occasions, let us pause and honor our nation’s heroes on Memorial Day.
 
Thank you for your support of our IMA local chapter and participation in activities!
