President's Message

Dear Birmingham Chapter Members,

Thank you so much for electing me to serve as your president of the Birmingham Chapter of IMA.  

My goal for this year as president is to first provide quality continuing education credit to our members through our monthly Technical Meetings.  The meetings are held on the fourth Tuesday of the month.  Please see our calendar and newsletter for details.  

I am also looking forward to this year’s Professional Development session in September.  We will once again work with IMA’s South Birmingham chapter to provide over 30 hours of quality CPE.  Details will be updated through our calendar and newsletters.

A little background about myself.  I have been a member of IMA for just over two years, and have served in the role of Treasurer this past year.  I am a two-time graduate of UAB, with business majors in Management, Marketing, and Accounting.  As an accountant, I have worked in public accounting for five years before joining Southern Company.  I have been with the Southern system for seven years, and Alabama Power for just over two years.

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone over the course of the next year as we work together to continue to develop our chapter.  Please feel free to provide any feedback about our meetings, topics, speakers, or any other suggestion you feel will make our chapter better.

If you have any questions about our chapter, about becoming a member, or about becoming involved in board activities, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  My information can be found on the Contact Us page of this website.
