About Council

Texas Council of IMA is one of twenty-two regional councils within the Institute of Management Accountants. The Texas Council represents five Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) chapters: Austin, Dallas Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio.

The Council’s purpose is to:

  • Further the objectives of the IMA and its members
  • Promote and facilitate cooperation and communication between chapters
  • Provide a means to pool resources to assist chapters with attaining their objectives

Each council consists of:

  • Board of Directors, based upon election
  • IMA Chapter representative(s), selected by the Chapter
  • Additional IMA members that can attend

All council members have the opportunity for national service. The council elects one of its members to represent the Council on the IMA global board of directors. In addition, IMA Members of the council may serve on IMA global committees.

Texas Council meetings are held quarterly on a Saturday, to accommodate work and travel schedules, in various locations based upon which Chapter sponsors the meeting. Although the meeting format/agenda changes, we try to touch upon all of the following:

  • Brief Reports from IMA Global Committees
  • Hot News Impacting the Financial Industry
  • Individual Chapter Summaries - Events, Success Stories, Achievements, Failures, etc.
  • Overall Issues that Chapters are currently facing
  • Old/New Business
  • Special Projects - for example Texas Annual Conference

In addition, there are plenty of events scheduled throughout the weekend to encourage networking, education, fellowship, and lots of fun.
