Presidents Message

As the new president for the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), I am excited and look forward to our upcoming year. We are in the process of planning this year’s events with hopes to bring you interesting and relevant topics in a fun and social setting.

My personal goals for the new year are to continue to grow our local chapter and to build on the IMA’s mission to be a forum for research, practice development, education, knowledge sharing, and the advocacy of the highest ethical and best practices in management accounting and finance. I look forward to adding new ways for our members in the community to connect with each other such as with our new IMA LinkedIn account.

We have a great team this year who are working hard to make our local chapter a valuable resource for the community. Visit our Events link on the left for updates on future events.
To help the board better serve its members we have recently sent out a survey to help identify members’ preferences and recommendations. Please take the time to complete this survey as your help with cultivating the chapter is greatly appreciated.

 I would also like to invite anyone who is interested in joining our board to contact me at

I look forward to seeing all of you at our events this year and hope that the IMA will continue to be a valued local resource and network for our community.
