Message from the President


Welcome to IMA Cleveland East,

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone in the chapter is doing well!  The board would like to thank Jeff Davis for presenting at our April technical meeting.  That may have been our last technical meeting for this fiscal year.  We had planned on having the Finance Director from the Metro Parks present in May.  However, He is very busy this month.  So we are going to try and have him present in June or July.  Please stay tuned.  Based on the current state of the pandemic, the board is planning on having virtual meetings this coming year.  We feel that for technical meetings, the online format has worked very well and has increased our reach with new speakers and attendees.  The IMA has announced that we can plan in-person events after 8/1/2021.  My goal for our members is to schedule a decent social event in-person for August.  

I apologize for not having a technical meeting planned for May.  In May most years, the chapter would conduct an ethics based technical meeting.  During this pandemic the president of the Denver - Centennial Chapter and I have shared ideas with one another about how to lead our chapters during the pandemic.  The Denver chapter has invited us to attend their ethics technical meeting on May 20th.  This will be from 2:00pm - 4:00pm MT (So 4:00pm - 6:00pm our time.)  The title is "Psychology of Fraud", and will be presented by Rand Gambrell and the second one is "Catch Me If You Can", presented by Kelly Paxton.  I encourage you all to attend this presentation.  I have attended some of their events and they are put together really well!  

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
