President's Message

Hello Our Valuable Partner.

Welcome to the IMA Eastern Province Chapter in Saudi Arabia.

The IMA is a world-class leading association of accountants and financial professionals in businesses. It has over 100 years of history, more than 100,000 members globally, and the respectful high return credential known as the CMA (Certified Management Accountant).

We are all dedicated, as a part of IMA leadership community, to oversea long lasting objectives of current and future management accountants and professionals across the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

The chapter’s main plan is simple; to promote the value that IMA is providing to every professional while making a business decision(s). The challenge, however, is still interesting as we work in a very dynamic market that requires us to stay agile and informed of the arising opportunities to maintain market’s growth and sustainability.

Among of the areas in which the chapter is considering are artificial intelligence, fintech and blockchain technologies that have been receiving a lot of attention during the last decade. We will provide a wide range of services such as, but not limited to, educational webinars, networking opportunities, real-life leadership training, and continue professional education courses to increase the value of IMA membership in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

The chapter will be committed to leverage the available resources in the region all together to serve current and future IMA’s members. In addition, I urge you to approach me or any board members for any help or suggestions.

At the end, I would like to share with you the triple (C) model that I believe in. Having the trust to act appropriately (being Confident), practicing the right skillsets sufficient to make the decisions (being Competent), and gaining the right designation that makes you stand among the professional crowd (being Certified); these are what make you reliable in the business market.
