The UK Chapter is created to support the IMA members in the UK.
To give you a little bit of history about the UK chapter, the chapter has been in creation since 2014. Many meetings and discussions took place to understand what you as members want as well as how to add value to the profession in the UK. Below is the Chapter timeline where I thought it would be interesting to share with you:
Late 2016: IMA sent a call for Board member nominations, interested UK members submitted their profiles for Board roles and online voting took place.
October 2016: Official Founding Board was announced based on IMA UK members’ votes.
February 2017: Official inauguration event in Hilton Hyde Park, the full day conference included the UK Chapter charter ceremony as well as four guest speakers from IMA, BDO and Jaguar Land Rover who are highlighted in the "Speakers line-up" article in this newsletter.
In the inauguration event the Board pledged to “start strong, stay strong and finish the year strong”, the Board also committed itself to an activity/month and we made sure to deliver in FY16/17 and will continue in 17/18 – Thank you for supporting us and please do let us know your thoughts!
