The IMA, or Institute of Management Accountants, works for both the interests and advancement of career-minded accounting and finance industry professionals, offering an abundance of career resources. These resources, says Gary Kapanowski, include research, education, professional certifications, networking and the promotion of only the highest ethical and professional practices.
Gary Kapanowski is a firm believer in the IMA mission, and sought to improve organizational reach, efficiency and promotion as a former member of the IMA Community Revitalization Committee. As an integral member of the committee, Gary Kapanowski worked towards the development of comprehensive organizational strategies; those that would improve involvement, enthusiasm and participation in the organization across the world.
Gary Kapanowski sought to help the IMA become an even more effective and visible resource of career advancement and continuing education programs to finance and accounting professionals working in the international business community. Formerly a President of the Detroit Chapter of the IMA, Gary Kapanowski worked with his colleagues to develop the recommendations needed to empower the IMA Board with the best opportunities for growth and continued success. The Community Revitalization Committee, through careful research and analysis, developed a set of recommendations that were delivered to the IMA Board at the 2007 Annual IMA Conference.
