President's Message

To my fellow members:

The Hartford Chapter has kicked off our new program year with a successful networking Event at Hanging Hills Brewery. Hope you all enjoyed hearing from our
guest speaker, Mae Maloney, as much as I did.

We have a jam-packed year on tap. We have two plant tours planned – Carla’s Pasta in the fall and Wepco Plastics Inc. in the spring. Joint meetings with APICS and ACFE will provide opportunities for extended networking. Our monthly meetings will cover topics such as blockchain, robotic process automation, urban planning, tax strategies, and much more. Schedules were mailed to our members in August. Look for the full program schedule on our website.

Interested in pursuing your CMA? IMA Global has partnered with Surgent Exam Prep for a discount on the review course plus on registration and the cost of the exam – a total of $700 in savings. Surgent provides a customized approach to exam prep, helping you focus more on areas of weakness and less on areas of strength, allowing you to minimize study time while maximizing results. Check out the promo code included in the newsletter. More questions? Ask our CMA Directors, Kristina Kregling at and/or John Fortin at

Don’t forget to RSVP to our September meeting. We will be hosting the event jointly with the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). Our speaker, Christopher Westphal, will be discussing how to “Exposing Fraud Using Common Sense Practices”. Let’s get the year underway!!
