President's Message

Bluegrass Area IMA,

Welcome to 2023! As a rule, I am not much for New Year's Resolutions. I prefer to work on developing habits year-round. That said, a couple events at the end of 2022 have turned my attention to being more intentional with professional development in 2023. I found myself rushing a bit to finish my CPE hours in 2022. Was not as bad as some years, just a few hours needed to get the last week, but more than I like. More importantly, as I've read articles recently discussing where the profession is headed, I am more convinced than ever it is critical accountants continually grow and expand their skillsets. I hope you will join the chapter at our live events to keep your skills current and sharp and build your CPE hours throughout the year.
