Support Our Student Leaders

Dear SCMS Members and Friends:

The Stuart Cameron McLeod Society (SCMS) was founded in 1934 to recognize those who serve IMA by providing an opportunity for continued friendship, fellowship, and service. As an extended part of that mission, SCMS strives to support student leadership in our profession by funding scholarships, providing mentoring programs, and more. For example, each year we award a $5,000 scholarship to a deserving IMA student member. We also make contributions to IMA’s very successful Annual Student Leadership Conference where students are given the opportunity to gain knowledge, meet potential employers, and network with peers.

Please join me now in supporting IMA student programs. Your contribution is crucial to the continued success of these initiatives. Here is a brief video highlighting the benefits of the conference.

To donate online, click here, or make your check payable to IMA (indicate SCMS – Student Leadership Support Campaign within the note section) and mail it to:
