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

Presidents Message

Welcome to the IMA Wild West Council!  Our Council comprises eleven ch
apters in the Southwest, including Arizona, Southern California, Nevada, and Utah. We hold quarterly meetings in different areas of the region, and our meetings and other events are open to all IMA members, prospective members and guests.    The mission of the Wild West Council is to promote and facilitate cooperation and communication between the Institute of Management Accountants and the Chapters in our region.  Each Chapter President is a voting member of the WWC, and we encourage Chapters to designate one or two delegates to the Wild West Council each year.

Our quarterly events include CPE, the Wild West Council meeting, and social/networking events.   Our CPE events provide an affordable way for members to earn their required hours, and we provide knowledgeable speakers to help increase members’ knowledge in the areas of accounting and finance.  Our meetings include an update on IMA Global events as well as discussions on chapter events, student activities and scholarships, and other activities promoted by the Wild West Council.  Our Social events provide a way to make IMA friends from other areas within the Council and an opportunity for Chapter and Council Leaders to exchange ideas and to improve the value we all provide to our IMA members. 

The Wild West Council Officers and Board Members have been leaders of their own Chapters or have served in some capacity with IMA at the National or Global Level.  The Council provides a way for Chapter Leaders to continue their professional development and become more actively involved with IMA.  Please contact me if you are interested in a position on the WWC Board. 

We have some exciting events planned this year, and I hope you will join us!
