President's Message

President’s Message - February 2023

Dear Members of the Stuart Cameron McLeod Society,

I hope 2023 is off to a good start for you both personally and professionally.  Remember all of the resources and benefits that are available to you as an IMA member.  IMA offers quality continuing education in various formats.  I look forward to IMA’s Accounting & Finance Conference (IMA23) that will be held in Minneapolis, MN June 11-14.  We will hold our induction ceremony and annual dinner on the evening of Sunday, June 11.  More information will be shared soon. 

I had the pleasure of attending IMA’s Student Leadership Conference in Pittsburgh in October, at which SCMS awarded its scholarship 2022-2023 scholarship to Alex Viljaste.  The next Student Leadership Conference will be held in Detroit, MI November 9 – 11, 2023.  SCMS is a proud supporter of these conferences that provide valuable networking and educational opportunities for students.  Please encourage students in your network and geographical area to attend the student conference and to consider applying for the SCMS scholarship.  The scholarship application deadline is March 10, and here is the link for sharing

I welcome any feedback that you have regarding SCMS activities and events.  We wish to provide support and serve our members as best as we can.  Thank you.
