President's Message

Dear Members, Students and Guests,


Welcome to our website. We are the website of the local IMA chapters that form the Regional group for the local chapters in the Maryland DC, Virginia and Delaware area. We are comprised of the Nation’s Capital (DC), Baltimore, Delmarva (Eastern Shore of MD), Skyline (VA), and Richmond chapters.


As members of the local chapters we strive to cooperate with our other local chapters to promote and provide Managerial Accounting  CPE and our certifications of the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) and our new certification; the Certified in Strategy & Competitive Analysis (CSCA).


We are a community of like-minded accountants and financial people who meet at chapter events for fellowship, CPE, and to mentor our student chapters in our local universities and colleges. We hope as a member of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) you will support your local chapter. That you will engage our communities of fellow accountants and enlighten us with your knowledge, your insight, and most of all your leadership as we guide our future generation of students into the great field of managerial accounting.


It is a great time to be part of the evolution of the accounting field as it brings more and more value to the analytical and managerial side of the equation to build the next business models for our global economy.


If you are a student or guest of this website, and your profession is accounting, we hope that you will explore our website and the IMA Global website to gather more information about the boundless opportunities that our certifications and our local chapters offer to you as a value driven membership supporting your career, your networking, and your chance to engage with our student members.


As always, we are a community of chapters that will reach out to help you in your future career endeavors. Take the first step and come to a local meeting, see for yourself the value of membership.


An IMA membership is a great choice for your career.


Analytical and data driven decisions are the Managerial Accounting tools that are creating the “new world” of Corporate accounting departments. We promise, no more green visors and 13 column paper.


Membership has Value,


Lee Klebe


P&C Council of the IMA
