Welcome to the new Ohio Regional Council website! Thank you, Carlos Chavez, for your efforts on this transition.

The coming months will be a busy and exciting time for our council. The 44th Annual Meonske Professional Development Conference will be held April 25th to 27th at Kent State University, and registration starts soon. We appreciate the time and efforts of the conference committee members. Please share the information with your chapters and help make this year’s conference the best-attended yet.

The 2018 ORC Scholarship Award Program is underway thanks to Dr. Wendy Tietz, Director - Scholarships. The application information is now available on this website under “Students,” and the deadline is March 17th. Please be sure that the students in your chapters are aware of this opportunity.

Finally, Candy Levine and a team are starting preparations for our annual Leadership Training Workshop to be held May 4th and 5th in the Columbus area. We always look forward to this annual opportunity to meet in-person to share ideas and have fun. Please plan to attend.

Continue to share and support the mission and core values of IMA and help us increase membership and the number of CMAs. Thank you for all of your contributions to our council, your chapters, and IMA!

Best regards,

Tanya Shell, CMA, CSCA, CPA
President, Ohio Regional Council
