Friends,

Thanks to the 27 members and guests who joined us on Wednesday, April 20, for a discussion and presentation about Digital Media and its importance for accounting and financial professionals!  

Best wishes to those who will be traveling West this summer to IMA events including the IMA Global Annual Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas June Sunday, June 19 – Wednesday, June 22, 2016. Those who participate find this a very rewarding trip!

Our next dinner meetings are planned for the third Wednesday in July and August, in Maryland, and then we hope to return to Virginia in September.  More details will be forthcoming.  Please save these dates (July 20, August 17, and September 21) and plan on joining us!

If you have ideas for future events, speakers, topics, and / or locations, including an opportunity to make a presentation at your place of business or with another professional organization, please email me at  president@imanationscapital.org. Together we can do more!

A reminder:  if you have not yet renewed your IMA membership for the 2016/2017 year, now is the moment!  Ours is one of the largest chapters in the IMA network.  Your continuing support is greatly appreciated as we seek to meet and exceed your expectations!

Boardroom Notes
The normally quiet world of accounting is being roiled as the rest of the profession awakens to what our founders knew when they established our association (originally the NACA-- National Association of Cost Accountants) almost a century ago—the critical importance of financial professionals who work in business and industry.

The February meeting of IMA’s Global Board of Directors focused largely on the challenges that this new-found recognition has engendered, and how to address them.
