The award is presented to student chapters who meet an extensive set of criteria, including submission of a one-year strategic plan to include mission and vision statements, goals and strategies, and the chapter’s strengths and weaknesses. Also required is a yearbook listing the activities and accomplishments of the chapter, including plant tours and industry visits as well as special programs and community service projects.

The award will be presented at the IMA annual conference in Minneapolis June 21-25. Student members of the chapter and the chapter sponsor Becky Phillips, an assistant professor of business on the UAM faculty, will attend the conference.

“All of us connected with the School of Business are proud of the accomplishments of this outstanding group of students,” said Dean Lou James. “To be recognized for seven consecutive years speaks to the dedication and commitment of our students through the years and to the faculty who work with them.”

The IMA was founded in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1919 as the National Association of Cost Accountants (NACA) to promote knowledge and professionalism among cost accountants and foster a wider understanding of the role of cost accounting in management. The name was later changed to the National Association of Accountants (NAA). In 1991, the organization name was again changed to the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). The IMA has student chapters in 38 states and three foreign countries.
