Hi, UP IMA Chapter Member!
That’s a wrap on another year of IMA! For the year, our chapter provided a tour of Rio
Tinto’s Eagle Mineral Mine in northern Marquette County and a presentation by Dr. Raymond O. Miller, Director of MSU’s Forest Biomass Innovation Center, in conjunction with our annual holiday dinner. For those needing CPE, this is a fun and educational way of obtaining them. Many thanks to those involved in setting up the tours and especially to our hosts and speakers: Scott Manninen (a member of our chapter) and Gwendolyn Thurston of Rio Tinto. Your efforts have made this year another successful one for our chapter.
We also granted a college scholarship to an NMU student. Don’t forget that our Student
Chapter of IMA at Lake Superior State University is sponsoring a conference on May 3,
2013 with keynote speaker Stephen Pedneault, CPA, CFE, CFF, FCPA of Forensic
Accounting Services, LLC. Topics include ethics, forensic accounting, and others. For
further information, please contact Jodi L. Hunter via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at
(906) 635-2424. For the detailed schedule, hotel information, and registration, visit
the website at: www.lssu.edu/sac2013. Finally, thanks to our loyal and committed
board of directors.
If you have an idea for a meeting or a tour for next year, please send your ideas to me via
e-mail at email@example.com or give me a call (227-1803 or 228-8052).
Have a great summer!
