President's Message

Dear IMA SA Family,

It's been an interesting year so far for the chapter. We continue to struggle to bring our local members back together in person. I know that 2020 instigated a lot of new challenges, including more remote work, family changes, more burnout, more struggles. I'm not saying that everything will be the same as pre-2020, but I am saying that you can rebound from these challenges with a good support network. And I know, from personal experience, you can find that network in our chapter.

If you are an accountant, a data analyst, a CMA, a CPA, a management professional, a student or an aspiring one, JOIN US! You WILL see the benefit as you make connections, get to ask questions, learn new things/ skills and build a supportive network BEFORE you need one.

I strongly encourage you to share your thoughts, join us at events and contribute some of your amazing self to the chapter. Rarely do we have the type of opportunity that enables us to have such a deep impact in our community and profession. You have the opportunity to build and support a network. You have the opportunity to encourage and educate future accountants and business leaders. Your engagement can do all of this! I encourage you to share your thoughts with me at I look forward to seeing you all at our next meeting!

Thank you,

Torey Reese, MBA, CMA, President, 2022-2023
