Middle East/India Chapters


Your IMA connection point

IMA members across Middle East and India have the opportunity to connect with their local chapters and network with peers to stay ahead in the industry. Chapters offer a range of professional education programs to earn NASBA CPE credits, as well as leadership, mentoring, community service, and authorship opportunities.

Conferences & events

IMA’s worldwide conferences and events provide unique opportunities to meet industry peers, exchange information, and build relationships while also earning CPE credits. In addition to regional conferences, we hold our Annual Conference & Expo in rotating cities throughout the U.S., featuring more than 50 educational and career-accelerating sessions on evolving industry trends and best practices.

Our annual Student Leadership Conference draws more than 500 attendees and brings together inspiring speakers, industry leaders, and today’s best aspiring professionals in accounting and finance.

Chapter activities


educational programs

Professional Educational Programs combine education, networking, and social activities to help members stay current with the latest in management accounting—and earn NASBA-approved CPE credits. Organized and attended by members at a local level, the meetings feature presentations by local speakers who can tailor topics according to group needs. The smaller size of the meetings allows for a free flow of ideas, and peer discussions further foster knowledge exchange.



Networking is an excellent opportunity to make new friends and business contacts and socialize with peers in a relaxed atmosphere. An informal setting can create the right context for mutual help—one person’s experience may answer another’s problem and vice versa—and give members more exposure to different areas of accounting.


service programs

Community service programs provide the chance to engage in skills-based and civic-service volunteering. Projects range from consulting for new and growing small businesses to beautification efforts and donor drives in local communities. These programs offer members a way to contribute in an organized and effective manner while developing their own management skills.


Mentorship initiatives

Mentoring is a valuable way to inspire and support the next generation of management accountants. By building in-depth relationships with young professionals and students, members can provide seasoned guidance for those aspiring toward the same career path.


Speakers bureau
