Welcome to the Wild West Council of the Institute of Management Accountants!

Presidents Message

Welcome to the website of the IMA Wild West Council. The Wild West Council is the regional Council for eleven chapters located in Arizona, Nevada, Southern California, and Utah. The mission of the Wild West Council is to promote and facilitate cooperation and communication between the Institute of Management Accountants (“IMA Global”) and the chapters in the Wild West Council (“WWC”) region. The Council provides support, assistance and value to the council chapters while upholding the purposes, objectives, and goals of IMA Global.  The Council also provides assistance and support for student chapters and for new or re-established chapters in the Council area.

One of our strategic goals is to provide value to the Chapter and at-large members in our area through leadership opportunities, CPE sessions, meetings, and opportunities for networking and social interactions.  We also work to promote the CMA certification and to support and provide information to students in our area on IMA, the CMA certification, and management accounting careers.  

Our last meeting for the 2015-16 year will be in April in Salt Lake City, Utah. The April meeting is always very important as we will be holding Leadership Training Sessions for incoming Chapter and Council Leaders and discussing plans for the upcoming year.   In addition, we have two very interesting CPE sessions planned at Questar and JCPenney Shared Services. It would be great to have our biggest turnout of the year, and I hope you will join us!! We will also be holding our business meeting, dining at some great restaurants, and visiting the Ft. Douglas Military Museum located on the University of Utah campus. I know we will have a great time!

This year really has gone fast, and I would like to thank the Council for the opportunity to serve as President this year.  I have enjoyed it, and I know that our incoming President, Deb Michalowski, will do a fantastic job. I would like to encourage incoming Chapter Presidents and President-Elects to look at the WWC calendar for next year and plan to attend at least one meeting next year.  I believe that the discussion and sharing of ideas is one of the main benefits of being a part of the WWC.  

I would like to thank all the Council and Chapter Leaders for your service to IMA and its members this year. You have definitely made a difference, and I hope that you learned and gained as much from your experience as your Chapter/Council did. Please consider continuing to help by taking a position in either your Chapter or the Council in the upcoming year.

We hope to see many of you at our April meeting in Salt Lake City!
