President's Message

We are the Joplin Tri-State Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). Our membership is open to everyone, but mainly we are a group of professional accountants and accounting students located in southwest Missouri, northeast Oklahoma, and southwest Kansas. Our members work in public and private companies throughout the tri-state area. 

Our mission is to provide our members with opportunities for professional development, networking, and career advancement; allowing them to become trusted business advisors in their organizations. We offer mentoring, certification, and education and encourage adherence to high ethical standards. We like to sum this mission up with a phrase you’ll see often: Learn. Connect. Grow. At its core, that’s what we hope to foster for our members.
I encourage you to browse our website for more information on joining the IMA. If you have any questions or would like to get involved, don’t hesitate to reach out.

You can connect with me directly at my email:

Warmest wishes,

Dakota Going
Joplin Tri-State IMA President
