Build your leadership skills with IMA Swiss Chapter

  
IMA Switzerland strives to bring Finance Professionals together by organizing high quality education and networking events.

We have board of experienced finance professionals in diverse Swiss top organisations, we work in close collaboration with IMA Europe and IMA Globa and count on their supportl.

We have the opportunity to develop our chapter further by expanding number of members and by helping our members to be successful in their journey to the CMA or even CSCA certification. By having bigger and stronger chapter we would be able to promote IMA in Switzerland better and we do believe that this bring a lot of positive impact on Swiss management accountants profession as well as support development of Swiss business and economy. We can’t undervalue the role of management accountants in the development of the business.

In order to maintain our network and make it useful for our members a lot of actions required, i.e. maintaining of our LinkedIn page at which we may share interesting thoughts, insights or even perform some surveys, organization of online and in person events in order to share our knowledge, experience and thoughts, this list might be very long.
In order to do so we need help of all our members as by the effort of only our Swiss Board Members, all of which has full time job, it won’t be good enough. So, we are looking for volunteers, who is ready to help us with organization of events, presenting at events, sharing information to be published on our LinkedIn page and other things, which you are ready to offer to the Chapter.

Volunteering at IMA Switzerland is a fun way you work with great people and build your network. Many volunteers like to give back to IMA and the community as well. Last but not least, it’s a great way to gain leadership experience outside of the work environment. We need people who bring ideas and also like to get things done. You can choose how much time you want to commit. Once a year, several times, monthly is all possible. Big or small.

Basics we need to cover:
  • Organize online and in person professional and networking events in Zürich or Geneva or other locations inside Switzerland
  • Organize an ethics CPE event
  • Finance & Administration
  • Quarterly Chapter’s newsletters
  • Maintain the Website and LinkedIn page
And we can do much more than that. The sky is the limit! The limits are only defined by the ideas of active members and their commitment to “just do it”. If every member of our Chapter will contribute to the Chapter development 10 minutes of his or her time per month we’ll get almost 80 working days of effort for the Chapter, which is a real game changer. What is 10 minutes for you, but together this may lead our Chapter to another level of success.

What we could do as well:
  • Organize other CPE and networking events (webinars, CFO round table, company visits…)
  • Regional committee for networking in Zürich or Geneva or other area in Switzerland
  • Welcome new members and contact departing members
  • Visit universities or companies with IMA Europe or on own initiative
  • Set up a coaching program for CMA candidates
  • Set up a mentoring program
  • Found a student chapter (funds available!)
  • Write an article or interview in Strategic Finance
  • Build relationships with partners that can be of value for the chapter and our members
  • Speak at events or connect us to speakers
  • Contribute funds or benefits in kind (from sponsors, companies, individuals)
  • Set up a corporate training program with IMA
  • Organize an award program (corporate recognition, CMA award, other member awards)
  • Write an article about IMA in other press
  • What ever else might be your idea
