President's Message

January 2021

Welcome IMA Members, Students, and Guests,

Happy New Year!  Albert Einstein once said, “Nothing happens until something moves.” Breaking the inertia to move after a period of inactivity is hard.  However, it is necessary. 

Despite the restrictions we encountered with the 2020 pandemic, our council has accomplished a lot already this fiscal year.  We conducted a financial audit of our financial records.  We were honored to help 119 students and three faculty members to attend the IMA Student Leadership Conference virtually.  We also sponsored a new student chapter at Coppin State. We have more we can and should do to deliver value in the area. 

Please consider joining us for an upcoming council board meeting.  We need you and your talents to leverage the momentum we have begun to finish the 2020-2021 fiscal year strong and start planning for the following year.  Share your talents and unique perspective by serving on a committee.  Volunteer to serve on the council board for the 2021-2022 fiscal year.  Allow us to add value to you.  Help us multiply value to our member chapters, individual members, and potential members in this region.


Amy Blechinger

2020-2021 President

Potomac and Chesapeake Council
