Superstars of the Campus Influencers ProgramBy
IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) continues to expand its Campus Influencers program to reach more students at U.S. colleges and universities, with 2,867 students attending 71 presentations at 59 schools last year. The goal of the program is to spread the word about the CMA® (Certified Management Accountant) certification, the benefits of IMA membership, and the wide range of career possibilities in management accounting.
The Campus Influencers program has grown considerably since its January 2016 launch. It began with approximately 40 volunteers and now has more than 180. Several Campus Influencers showed excellence in their impact on and commitment to the program, including four “Superstars” who each made at least four campus visits in 2018:
Thomas Francl, CMA
James L. Smith, CPA
Jimmie Smith, CPA
In addition, the following Campus Influencers made more than one campus visit: Marvin Rosen; R. Kevin Adams, CMA, CFM, CPA; Scott Berry; Bernice Jenkins, CMA, CPA; Josefina Hernandez; Mike Lovelace, CMA, CPA, CISA; Patricia Wynn, CMA, CPA, CGMA; and Elliot Kammeyer, CMA, CPA. Chris Aquino, CMA, CFM, CSCA, CPA, IMA’s business development manager, also made two site visits for the program.
