Institute of Management Accountants – Pittsburgh Chapter

Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 IMA Program Year!  

This year the Pittsburgh chapter will be offering 2 CPE at our monthly meetings.  This is response to our member’s request for more CPE to make it more worth while attending a meeting.  For a long time, we have provided 2 CPE for our annual Ethics meeting, but this year we are offering 2 CPE meetings every other month, with social and networking events (non CPE) scheduled in between.   Your chapter officers have worked hard over the summer to put together an interesting and educational program for the upcoming program season September 2017 through May 2018.


Our first meeting is all about Brexit: the separation of the UK from the European Union.

We have two speakers from Schneider Downs who will present on “What you should know about Brexit” and “Preparing for the EU’s Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)”  

The GDPR impacts any non-European business that offer goods and services to data subjects in the European Union.   We are finding this to be a very hot topic for most companies that have operations in the EU, and a timely presentation for the IMA.

Wednesday September 20, 2017 at 6:00 PM.   Rivers Club in Oxford Center downtown.

Previous Meeting May 17, 2017

Kudos to chapter member Margaret Smith, CMA, PMP, CCM, who planned on attending our May meeting on the “New Accounting Standards for Revenue Recognition ASC 606 and Leases ASC 842”. What she hadn’t planned was being the topic speaker that evening! Our scheduled speaker, Our scheduled speaker, Rich Caporal, CMA, MBA from Ernst & Young, got stuck at a Chicago airport and was unable to make it to our meeting. He emailed his presentation to Tim Abbott and Margaret did the presentation for us. She did a great job without any time for preparation!  Thank you for stepping up Margaret.
