President's Message

Hello, and welcome to the  IMA Catawba Valley Chapter website!  Accounting takes on many roles in business and this is what the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), a global organization for all phases of accounting, represents.

The Catawba Valley Chapter covers mostly the Western portion of North Carolina from Statesville toward Tennessee, and from the Yadkin Valley area through just North of Charlotte.  Most of our activities are based in the Hickory area.  We are part of the Carolinas Council area for the IMA.

In our monthly meetings, we provide speakers on topics of interest in a variety of accounting topics, from Finance Accounting through Human Resourses and Tax matters. Our meetings are mostly at lunch, but we do hold some at breakfast and this year have started holding a couple in the later afternoon.      

We enjoy meeting new people, so please stop in and enjoy any of our meetings or Conferences.  Let’s show you what our local Chapter of the IMA is about.
