President's Message

Dear IMA members, Future members and Guests,

The leaves are changing and there is a chill in the air……I hope everyone is enjoying the change of seasons and getting outdoors.

 We miss seeing all of you in person as we continue to meet virtually through December 2021.   The health and safety of our members come first, but soon we will revisit the subject as to the Spring Meetings being either in person or virtual, depending on the Covid situation, and the CDC recommendations.

November is a busy month at the Long Island Chapter!  We hope to see you at one of our events.

November 9 Accounting Firm Managing Partner Panel zoom meeting (6pm – 8pm) narrated by Jerry Luckman and featuring the Managing Partners from Marcum LLP, Prager Metis, and Cerini & Associates.  We thank Carolyn Mazzenga, Marianna Mooney and Ken Cerini for what will be an interesting and informative discussion sharing their experience of running an accounting firm in today’s world.    Register for this meeting


The November meeting will include highly regarded virtual networking prior to the meeting.   Networking with 4 or 5 people at a time makes for a great opportunity to meet and talk with people who you know or will get to know.   


November 9 – Student Career Workshop zoom meeting (3:30pm – 5:30pm) will consist of a panel of professionals from Deloitte, Canon USA, Inc., Grassi & Co., and Blue Point Brewing, who will speak on topics, such as, virtual interviews, working remotely, innovative technologies, career opportunities, career paths and personal brand development.  

The goal of this free workshop is to help the students prepare for job interviews and career advancement.       Register for this meeting


November 16 – Young Professionals Event – Unleashing the Power of LinkedIn – YP’s are encouraging to attend this free workshop to learn how to use LinkedIn successfully.        Register for this meeting


Please feel free to share these events with your colleagues, friends and family as there is no limitation on who can attend.

I would encourage all our members and guests to go to our web site and see all of the sponsorship opportunities available, it is because of our generous sponsors we are able to put on all of our wonderful programs and continue with all of the outreach that we do for the community, as well as all of our partner schools.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our membership for their patience and cooperation, and our board for stepping up to the challenge of reinventing the LI Chapter as Virtual Educational, and Networking Platform, that we have attracted not only local people to our meeting, but we have had attendees from all over the country. Which attests to the quality of the topics and panels that we have presented

Looking forward to Virtually seeing everyone at one of our November events!

Stay Safe


Best Regards


Marvin Rosen
