Dear Fellow IMAers,

Please join us for our dinner meetings at 6 pm at the North Raleigh Hilton and gain an hour of CPE for each: 

October 17, 2013 will feature speaker Roby Sawyers, CPA, CMA, PhD., a professor in the Poole College of Management at NC State University.
      The topic is North Carolina Tax Modernization.

November 21, 2013 will feature speaker Jim Ahler, CAE who is CEO of the NC Association of CPA’s (NCAA).  Get the scoop on what’s happening with the NCACPA.

The October meeting is designated “Student Night” and “CMA Night”. IMA students can attend at no charge if they register on-line.  Members who recently passed the CMA exam will be recognized.
We had a great September meeting where our speaker was NC State Auditor Beth Wood, CPA who had some entertaining stories about our state government. 
 Bring a coworker or friend to the meeting and introduce them to the IMA.  If an IMA member brings a potential IMA member to the October meeting, the friend will get $5.00 off of their dinner fee. Regular members who  pay on-line by the 10th of the month get a $5.00 dinner discount.
We encourage everyone to pay on-line as this will expedite our payment processing when you arrive and get your name tag. You can pay on-line with a credit card. You do not need a Pay Pal account.
If you are not a CMA, we have incentives to encourage you to become a CMA. Details for the CMA Review course at Duke University  is in this newsletter. Registration is now open at
IMA members get a $100 discount off the course fee.  For the class beginning in September 2013 our chapter is offering a $75 grant direct to the IMA member.  Contact me if you have registered for the September class and we’ll get a payment to you.  We encourage you to register as soon as possible.
Also, in this newsletter is information about the Gleim CMA Review course. IMA members can receive over a 30% discount.
If you have topics or potential speakers for our meetings, please contact me. If you wish to take a more active role in our chapter, please let me know.
 Lastly, if you wish to volunteer for the March of Dimes, in April 2014, let me know.
We have many plans for the upcoming year to make it exciting and enjoyable for our members.  We need your support so plan to attend the IMA NC Triangle Area Chapter meetings every 3rd Thursday.
