Our Mission

Welcome to the North Carolina Triangle Chapter #406 of the IMA. We cover the greater Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and other communities surrounding the Triangle area. For those of you who are not familiar with the IMA, we are a professional management accountant chapter with monthly speakers, community service, and social events. Through these events, members are able to network with other professionals who share common interests. We are also part of a larger organization, still called the IMA, which can be beneficial to all professionals. As part of your membership, you can acquire and maintain two certifications, CMA (Certified Management Accountant) or the CFM (Certified Financial Manager). These two certifications will increase your skill level, as well as professional status.
