Message from the President

Dennis Rarick

Welcome to IMA Cleveland East,

My dear fellow IMA colleagues,

I would like to thank all members and their guests for making our September 21st, “A Night at the Races” a successful event.
Likewise,  I wanted to thank all those who volunteered at the “Halloween Drive-Thru” event on October 8th. 
It was truly wonderful to connect with everyone who was able to attend these events!

Please consider attending our upcoming Meet & Greetevent on Tuesday, November 15th  at Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant in Orange Village.  Those individuals who attend will be entered into a drawing to receive a $50.00 gift card.

Additionally, I would like to remind our members that on the morning of Friday, November 18th, our chapter is holding it’s “Virtual Annual Controller’s Workshop” for Controllers, CPAs, CMA, CFMs and Accountants interested in staying up to date on topics of interest or new rules and laws.  These technical meetings will allow our members to earn up to four Continuing Professional Education hours. If a member attends all four sessions, he or she will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card!

On the evening of Sunday, December 11th, our chapter is volunteering at the North Pole Adventure” event sponsored by the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR).  We will be outside at the “North Pole” aka the CVSR Fitzwater Maintenance Yard in Valley View, OH.   There will be off-train, outdoor opportunities for volunteers. Volunteers will be dressed as Elves to assist Santa in delivering his Holiday Magic. The chapter will provide volunteers with hot cocoa and seasonal treats after the event.

Registration for all these events is open, or will be available soon, on our Chapter’s website for registration.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our next member event!

As always, please feel free to contact me or my colleagues from the Board of the Cleveland East Chapter.

We would love to hear your ideas, suggestions or if you would like to participate in the chapter’s activities.

Kind regards,


Dennis Rarick, CMA, CPA
