President's Message


Many college students are preparing to graduate in the Spring. Now is the time for college students to meet with professionals to discuss career options. The board members and I have planned Student Night to allow college students to speak with professionals to discuss accounting careers and certifications.

Lisa James, Division Director at Robert Half International, will discuss accounting career options. Brian Hock, President of Hock International, will share information about accounting certifications and test preparation software. In a panel discussion format, professionals will share their career journey and answer students' questions. Networking starts at 5:30pm and dinner will be served at 6:00pm.  

Please join the IMA Bluegrass Chapter for Student Night on Thursday, February 15h at 5:30pm in Room LRC 105 at Midway University. During the meeting, I will announce our 2018-2019 slate of officers and nominations for board members will be accepted from the floor.Please register for the meeting by February 8th.

Enjoy you day,

Dr. Cassandra Smith
