Presidents Message  

Welcome March!

With the warmer weather we have had recently, it feels
more like Spring every day. Letís hope it continues.

Now that March is here our attention also moves to
income tax preparation and all that goes with it. That
includes the security of your information. Our speaker this month is Jonathan Magan, Senior Vice President from Wells Fargo Bank in Charlotte. He has over 25 yearsí experience in risk management including financial and operational exposure risk. Jonathan will share with us the Cyber Security and Insurance Update for 2017. It should be interesting to hear how Wells Fargo is addressing the security issues and to see how those ideas may work for others.

At the end of March, IMA Global asks that we turn in our new list of Board Members for the year. We are looking for someone to fill the following positions: Secretary, Regional Council Delegates (2), Director of Employment, Communication Leader, Meeting RSVPís (including Conferences), and Membership. Generally most of the communication is handled through email, with 5 or 6 meetings by the Board each year. If you are interested or have someone to recommend for one of these positions, please contact any Board Member.

There are some other ways to help our Chapter if your
time through the year is limited. We send out an email blast before both of our Conferences to boost attendance. The email list is very long and it is helpful if several people take just a few hundred names to email. To help with the Fall Conference, someone could take on the responsibility of booking the Convention Center and working with the Caterer or help in sending out the CPE certifications. Many hands make the work lighter Ė a phrase I have heard often in the past few months. I hope to hear from a few to help our Chapter move forward.

Best Regards,
Ellen Knauf
