Institute of Management Accountants – Pittsburgh Chapter

The Pittsburgh Chapter celebrated a VICTORY at the

“Night at the Pirates”


 On July 19th at PNC Park, the Pittsburgh chapter was represented by a group of 23 members, spouses and friends at a special Wine tasting event starting at 5:30.   We enjoyed sampling four wines, had dinner in the Club Level and then watched the Pirate game from two adjoining private luxury suites.   It was a fun evening networking with other members and watching another exciting Pirate game.  The Pirates came from behind in the 9th inning to tie the game and then went on to win in the bottom of the 10th.   

Calling all members of the Pittsburgh Chapter:  Board Planning Meeting

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.
