  • Remembering Ginny Barker

    Ginny Barker passed away on Tuesday, October 23, 2018.  She was an active member of the Dayton Chapter and Ohio Regional Council for many years, where she served in various leadership roles.  To many of us, she was a professional colleague, mentor and a dear friend. She will be missed, but always be in our hearts and memories. 

    In memory of Ginny's many contributions to the IMA, I will be creating a tribute page on the Council website.  If you have any pictures of Ginny from past IMA events or have stories you would like to share, please send them to me at and I will be sure to post them as I receive them.  I recently posted a collage of pictures on the Council website Home page.  I look forward to receiving your pictures and stories.
