You may have heard by now that the IMA Annual Conference & Expo (ACE) 2020 planned for June in Atlanta, Ga., was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the globe. This was a very difficult decision but one that we felt was necessary for the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and all stakeholders involved.
While the in-person conference isn’t available to our members this year, IMA does have a large and growing number of educational opportunities readily available virtually for our global members. Moreover, many of these resources are offered for free. So even though everyone is staying at home and social distancing, our members still have access to a variety of high-quality and relevant educational resources to build their skills and enhance their professional development.
FREE EDUCATION THROUGH AUGUST 31, 2020
(Note: These offers are available to IMA MEMBERS ONLY. For membership information, go here.)
To support our members during this difficult time, IMA initially decided to provide members with a special free offer of three fee-based courses through June 30, but recently extended the no-cost window to August 31, 2020. These courses include the new IMA Data Analytics & Visualization Fundamentals Certificate™ (value of $199), the IMA Strategy and Competitive Analysis Learning Series® (value of $525), and Blockchain 101 by IMA (value of $39). These limited-time offers have been very popular, and all members are encouraged to take advantage before August 31, 2020.
MEMBER BENEFIT PRODUCT OFFERINGS
IMA also continues to offer various learning resources for free as part of the member benefits package. Recent additions include online courses such as Communicating in the 21st Century, Excel 365: Tips in Ten, and Webinars On Demand online packages covering technology, leadership, and strategic management topics. IMA continues to offer 60+ award-winning webinars that are presented at prescribed times and that address timely management accounting and leadership topics.
