Welcome to IMA’s 2018 – 2019 Chapter year. I am especially honored to serve as council chair this year as the IMA celebrates its 100 year anniversary. I have been a non-certified member of the IMA since 2003 and began my involvement on the Cincinnati North board in 2004. I am excited about the coming year and look forward to serving you.

We kicked off the Council year with a great LTW session where we embraced the recently announced IMA privacy policies and spent time on building a social media plan to help our chapters promote events and attract new members. I encourage you to find and follow all Ohio Chapters on social media.

Congratulations and thank you to Tanya Shell for her leadership and the entire council board for their efforts in helping earn the Council Award of Excellence for 2017-2018. In addition, thank you Tanya for representing the Ohio council on IMA’s Global Board of Directors.

Our chapters and members are an integral part of the IMA and are key to keeping our IMA communities thriving. The council is here to serve as a bridge between the Global Board and professional chapters and our mission is to help our chapters be successful. Thank you for serving on your local board and I encourage you to become involved with council.

The council consists of chapter representatives across Ohio with many years of experience and ideas to leverage. I look forward to meeting more of our members and plan to visit as many chapters and events that I can this coming year. Please keep me posted of your upcoming events! Here is to 100 years of IMA and another successful year for our chapters and council.

President, Ohio Regional Council
