With the COVID-19 crisis resulting in the cancellation of the 2020 IMA®Annual Conference & Expo in Atlanta, Ga., the organization was unable to hold in-person awards ceremonies to recognize IMA members and others for their exceptional work and efforts. While we can’t shake their hands at the moment or give them the standing ovation they so richly deserve, IMA’s heartiest congratulations go out to all of this year’s award winners.
