We are the Heartland Regional Council of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA). The Heartland Council is one of 23 IMA Regional Councils within the United States and Canada. We are composed of 11 individual chapters located in Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Illinois. Our 1150 members are mostly management accountants working in public and private companies throughout the heartland of the United States. Our mission is to provide leadership, guidance, education and networking opportunities to our chapters. We do this through chapter board leadership training, an annual educational conference, a student leader conference and participation in the IMA Annual Conference. We are an entirely volunteer organization.
