President's Message

Welcome to the Grand Rapids Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants. I am excited to be the Chapter President for the 2014-2015 year.  I am also excited to be working with the other great board members that are volunteering their time and talents to help make this year successful.


We are busy finalizing the year’s schedule which will include seven lunch meetings which offer CPE credits to those in attendance, a charity event to give back to the community that supports us, and student scholarships. Check back later to find the details about the September meeting.


I hope that you will be able to join us for at least one of these great events that will start in September. Please do not hesitate to contact the Chapter at GrandRapidsIMA@gmail.com with ideas for new programs and feedback. I hope you enjoy your summer.


Nicole Dunn, CIA, CMA
