Huntsman IMA student chapter takes national lead with 14th win in a row

For the 14th consecutive year, USU’s Institute of Management Accountants student chapter received the “Gold Level Award of Excellence” designation from the national IMA organization. This year the earning of the award gave the group, for the first time, the distinction of having the longest winning streak in the nation.

The Beta Alpha Psi chapter has also earned the BAP Superior Chapter award for the 32nd consecutive year in a row, which is also the longest winning streak in the nation.

Of the IMA chapters that received the Gold Level recognition, USU’s chapter was named as one of four “Outstanding Student Chapters” in the nation. The chapter will receive a $1,000 award and a plaque for having received this designation. In addition, two of only six $2,500 national undergraduate IMA scholarships were awarded this year to USU IMA officers Richard Netzley and Mark McLaws.

A generous donation to the Sub-for-Santa Sharing Tree program was the focus of IMA’s service project. Hundreds of raffle tickets were sold for an opportunity to win a pair of Utah Jazz basketball tickets. Through efforts of IMA members, the club was able to raise $700, which sponsored ten children in the Sub-for-Santa program, an effort that drew support from students and faculty alike. Rosemary Fullerton, Garth Novack and Frank Shuman generously supported the project by purchasing raffle tickets for each student in their classes.
