Message from the President


Welcome to IMA Cleveland East,

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone in the chapter is doing well!  The board would to thank everyone who presented at the Controllers Workshop back in November.  We had a successful Workshop with very good attendance.  By keeping the Workshop virtual we not only kept everyone safe, we had record attendance at all four of the sessions.  We also hope everyone at a nice Holiday season and your year has gotten off to a great start.

In March the chapter will be hosting a virtual event.  Joe Haubrich from The Federal Reserve will be giving his Annual Economic Update.  This will be on March 23rd at 6pm.  We will be posting the link to On24 registration when it is available on our website and will also send an email to the registration.  This will be for one hour of CPE.  On April 8th we will be hosting an in-person social event at Urban Vinter.  More information will be coming soon on this event.

Finally, if any members of the chapter would like to hold a position on the chapter's board there are positions available.  For our younger members, this could provide an opportunity to gain some leadership experience to boost their resume.   Feel free to contact myself or any of the chapter's board members.

Jimmy Renz

Cleveland East President
