I am so proud of our Chapter’s members, supporters and Board of Directors. With your support our Chapter was able to host over 75 international students and advisors from the International Consulting Network (ICON) at our January dinner program. This was a wonderful experience for these students. Each of you in attendance made the students feel welcome and I am truly grateful to each of you. Not only did this event allow our Chapter to showcase what a dedicated and professional organization we are, but we were able to introduce the IMA to the next generation of leaders.
As many of you know, our Chapter’s annual signature event is our Financial Executive of the Year (FEY) dinner which will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. The FEY committee is seeking nominations for qualified candidates. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2017 and you can find more information on our Website about this prestigious award.
On February 14, 2017 I welcome you to join us at our monthly dinner meeting entitled Business Transition-Family and Non-Family Businesses. Our speaker will be James Olan Hutcheson from ReGENERATION Partners. He will present varying perspectives on business transitions.
The Long Island Chapter Board of Directors continues to focus its efforts on offering valuable programs and benefits to our members. One of these benefits is through sponsorship of our breakfast and dinner programs. Sponsorship allows our supporters to promote their companies to the Accountants and Financial Decision makers of the Long Island’s business communities. We currently still have a few sponsorship opportunities available for the remainder of the chapter year. Please feel free to visit our website www.LongIsland.IMAnet.org for more information.
