Certify Joins the 2016 IMA Annual Conference & Expo

Starting Saturday, June 18, Certify will be traveling to Las Vegas for the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) Annual Conference & Expo. With over 1,000 finance and accounting professionals in attendance, and over fifteen meet-and-greet events, IMA 2016 is the education and networking opportunity of the year.

This year’s conference program is built around a “fast-forward” theme in reflection of attendees staying ahead of the curve by networking, learning new skills and expanding their knowledge of the finance sector. This event offers over 50 educational sessions covering a variety of topics, including ethics, leadership, risk management and much more, and attendees can ensure they will learn the latest finance and accounting tips and tricks from knowledgeable professionals. This year’s event also hosts a number of exclusive special events. Attendees can partake in the Student Case Competition as four finalist teams deliver their case analyses to a panel of judges. Or, spend the afternoon at the Young Professionals Networking Reception, to meet with industry peers, discuss issues and collaborate to come up with solutions.

Hosted at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, this five-day event boasts attendance from over a dozen captivating speakers, including, Billy Beane, Executive VP of Baseball Operations for the Oakland A’s, Rick Arpin, Senior VP of Entertainment for MGM Resorts International and NY Times Bestselling Author, Leeza Gibbons. Starting off, Beane’s riveting speech relates his unforgettable underdog story to the ideals of competitive advantage in the management realm. Following that motivating session, Gibbons inspires attendees to show strength and competitiveness in the workplace, while still getting the most through kindness with her session, How to Play Nice and Win Big. Rick Arpin wraps it up with his session on perfecting the art of operational management in today’s entertainment industry.

IMA is also offering exclusive recruitment opportunities for those interested.
