President's Message

Hope everyone had a nice holiday!

Technical meetings will resume January 16th with our annual Economic Update with Joseph Haubrich from The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

The Controller’s workshop was a success for our chapter as well as our members. We again sold out with close to 40 people attending the event. A giant thank you to Sandy Brenner and Robin Schade for planning and executing the all day CPE session.

Another giant thank you to all that attended. This event provides much of the funding needed for our other chapter activities. With the funds we will be able to:

  • Offer scholarships to students to pursue an accounting degree.
  • Put on a student night for students to attend at no cost to them.
  • Assist in sending 12 students to the IMA Student Leadership Conference.
  • Put on technical meetings for $25 to members.
Without this event and your attendance these programs wouldn’t be possible.

If you would like to get more involved in our Chapter we have board positions open. Please contact me to learn more; perhaps a new year’s resolution is to network or give back.

We look forward to a great 2018!

Ernie Brass
President, Cleveland East Chapter
