President's Message

Hello Dear IMA Friends:
The Detroit Chapter of the IMA begins the planning process for the year several months in advance. This is how our board plans to:

  • Pick topics to help our members affordably meet CPE requirements bridged along with networking opportunities,
  • Reach out to the companies and individual financial professionals who missed the announcement that the CMA certification and networking are important career steps and
  • Help educate area college students of the benefits of obtaining the CMA credential.

Please consider joining us at our next chapter meeting!

We seek financial professionals who want to expand their leadership skills and networking visibility. The only requirement for joining the planning process is that you must be willing to step up and be involved.

The commitment of serving on the board is light, but it is of consequence. Our Chapter board members dedicate themselves to be a success professionally, personally and as a chapter volunteer. We count on each other to make the chapter goals mean something in the lives of other professionals and students alike. We have fun and would love to help you enjoy the same joys and success our careers have afforded us. So come join us! And yes, dinner and beverage are a part of these meetings.

A lot of members want to simply pass on ideas of topics or speakers that might be of interest for the coming year. That is also great! If you have an idea that seems to be relevant, please submit your ideas to our Chapter Administrator, Karinda Cummins at

At the very least, we look forward to your support, by your attendance at our regular Chapter meetings during the next year.

Tom Miele, CMA

Chapter President​​​
