EventsWelcome to the Tampa Bay Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants
Sunshine Skyway
Increase your professional network when it is most important - which is well BEFORE you need to be looking for a new position.

The Tampa Bay Chapter need individuals that are looking to be an active part of an updated and vibrant chapter. A chapter that can become an active way for finance professionals in the area to have a network where they can ask each other questions about challenges they face and that they can rely on for communicating new and exciting opportunities.

The Tampa Bay Chapter of the IMA has over three hundred members and one hundred members at large from Brooksville, St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Tampa and Sarasota. The goal of our chapter is to provide a forum to help our members advance their careers through education, certification and networking opportunities. We hold dinner meetings monthly from September through May with at least one hour of CPE with networking opportunities. All accounting/finance professionals and business students are encouraged to attend. 

We invite everyone that is looking for CPE credits, just wants to network, interested in the topics of discussion and especially individuals ready to get involved in the chapter at the board level to make sure that the events provided in the future are events that IMA members in the area and the accounting and finance community want! 

If you have not attended a chapter event or it has been a long time, this is the event to attend. 
It is a combined Florida Council and Tampa Bay chapter event.
