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

Presidents Message

Our year is off to a great start!  We’ve had two activity-packed meetings and have already accomplished a significant portion of our goals for the year.  
    During the weekend of October 16 and 17, we held our second quarterly meeting in Las Vegas.  On Friday, Oct. 15, we presented the “Spotlight on Technology” Seminar with 5 ½ CPE credits in conjunction with the IMA Las Vegas Chapter and Beta Alpha Psi from UNLV.  Our speakers covered topics including Advanced Excel functions, Cyber Security, Evernote, and Ethics 2015.  We had a great turnout from the students at UNLV and provided them with the opportunity to interact with accounting professionals and learn more about IMA and the CMA certification.  We also had a great turnout from the Las Vegas IMA Chapter and other chapters in the Wild West Council area.  Our meeting took place Saturday morning, and then we had a great time visiting The Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas.  
    We are also very happy to announce that we received an IMA Memorial Education Fund (MEF) Grant.  This helped us to offer two scholarships to the Student Leadership Conference (SLC) and will help us to sponsor several student events during the year, including our Seminar in Las Vegas and other CMA rallies throughout the year. Congratulations to our SLC scholarship winners, Kendall Argust and Brianna Boretto!
    Our Long Range Planning Committee met while in Las Vegas with two goals for the Wild West Council:  increasing participation in the Council and increasing revenue. We feel that the Council provides a valuable service to the chapters and we want to be able to continue to provide scholarships, student assistance, and promote the CMA and IMA; however, we need to bring in more revenue throughout the year in order to continue this.  We are also looking for new people to take positions on the board and help guide the council.  Our committee will be exploring ways we can do this throughout the year.  If you have any suggestions or would like to be more active in the Council, please contact me.
    We hope many of you will join us for one or both of our remaining meetings for the year.  Our next meeting will be February 19-20, 2016 in Phoenix and will be in conjunction with the IMA Global Board of Directors.  This meeting will be a great opportunity to network with IMA leaders as well as those in our council area.  Please see more information on the meeting and other events on our Events page. Although we do not have all of the details yet, registration for the events is available on the events page. 
    Our last meeting of the year will be in Salt Lake City on April 22-23, 2016, so mark your calendar and save the date.  

Happy Holidays to you and your families!
