Hello IMAs in the UK and around the world,
Hope you are enjoying the summer wherever you are!
I am delighted to be writing to you in our second quarterly newsletter, it has been quite exciting for the Chapter with the start of the new fiscal year and having two new Board members. Ahmad Alajdad as our FY17/18 Treasurer and Akram Ayyubid as FY17/18 VP of membership, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome them both and encourage you all to contact myself or any of the board members if you would like to be part of the UK Chapter volunteering committee.
Speaking about how thing have been moving in the last couple of months, below is a glance at the last quarter activities:
June 2017: Officially launched the UK Chapter Website, would be great to get your feedback and thoughts on it (http://uk.imanet.org).
July 2017: The brilliant Bud Kulsza speaking about Mentoring in our July Webinar.
August 2017: We are back with our quarterly newsletter and lots of articles including a special message from Jeff Thompson, president and CEO of IMA. Also, Andy Logan is writing about mentoring and its benefits.
We have a couple of important events in the pipeline for next quarter too, watch out your emails for more details on September's Webinar and our semi-annual face-to-face conference taking place in London this October as well as our 2nd joint event in November.
I would love to hear more about your thoughts and suggestions, please feel free to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to meeting you in person October,
Fatema El-Wakeel, CMA, MBA
IMA UK Chapter Founding President
