IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants), including the Joplin Tri-State Chapter offers our heartfelt support to those directly or indirectly affected by the coronavirus outbreak around the world. Our number-one priority at all times remains social responsibility for the safety of our global stakeholders, including staff, volunteers, CMAs, candidates and partners. As such, we regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Midwest Manufacturing Accounting Conference (M2AC) for 2020. We feel that this is in the best interest of our attendees, speakers and volunteers.
However, we plan to come back better than ever next year, as many of our scheduled speakers have already agreed to join us in 2021! We will continue to work hard to provide you with an excellent conference, which is planned for May 20-21, 2021.
Unfortunately, we do not feel that this event is very well suited to move to an online event, but we encourage you to seek out other virtual opportunities that the IMA has to offer. Just visit the Education Center on our global IMA website for a full listing of available courses, which are FREE to members.
For those of you that have already submitted payment for the conference this year, we will be working with you to issue refunds as soon as possible. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
As always, thank you for your patience and continual support!
