President's Message

A Message from Mike Witt, Chapter President

 

My name is Mike Witt and I have been a Certified Management Accountant for 6 years now.  I am very honored to return as the President of our Cincinnati North Chapter for the 2018 - 2019 chapter year.  Our chapter is about to embark on its 42nd year and is stronger than ever.  Joining this great chapter was one of the best professional decisions I could have made.  The networking I have been a part of due to this chapter is invaluable to my career success.  We are so fortunate to have such a vast array of continuous educational and networking opportunities available with the IMA. 

Your chapter board has been hard at work planning for this upcoming chapter year.    We are finalizing the process of acquiring speakers that will discuss timely topics of interest that concern accounting and finance professionals across all types of businesses.  We welcome your ideas for topics and speakers.  We are putting special emphasis on reaching out to the next generation of management accountants by having two events on college campuses, one at UC in October and the other at Xavier in April.  We have a dedicated board member, Candy Levine, who is leading the effort to meet with students to share information on the CMA as well as encourage them to attend our events and network with established professionals.  We are doing our best to promote our events more through social media, so if you see any of our content published on Facebook, LinkedIn or any other social media platform, please like and/or share.

Another development we are excited to share is the development of our website.  This effort is being led by Ted Hyle.  The website will be the “go to” place to get information on upcoming events, chapter officer information, past newsletters, and photos of past events.  You will be able to find much of the same information on the website that was in the roster book including a password protected, members only roster file.  

Through this website, you will have the ability to pay for networking events with Paypal and debit/credit cards.  Also you can pay with a debit/credit card at the door.

We are always looking for your opinions and input.  In addition to providing our contact information, we welcome your attendance at our monthly board meetings which are held on the second Wednesday of each month.  We also have open positions where you can participate in the decision making process.

Looking forward to a great year- 

Respectfully,

Mike Witt

President, Cincinnati North IMA Chapter
