About Chapter

Our Chapter History

Founded in 1964 and 1969 respectively, the Phoenix and Scottsdale Chapters merged in 2002 into the current AZ Valley of the Sun Chapter.

Current Membership

As of October 2019, our chapter has almost 500 members consisting of accounting and finance professionals, retired professionals, and students. Our members work in a variety of capacities including private and public corporations, accounting firms, universities and colleges, and as sole practitioners.

We have over 195 members that currently hold a CMA and/or CFM designation. Additionally, many members are also CPAs, CFEs, and/or CIAs, among other designations.


We hold monthly dinner/educational technical seminars that combine an opportunity for networking and for Continuing Professional Educational (CPE) Credit. We also participate in many community service activities in support of worthy organizations such as ALS, Juvenile Diabetes, Special Olympics, Salvations Army Christmas Angel Program and Water Drive. 

CMA Certification

As members of IMA, we actively work to promote and support the CMA certification. We receive new inquiries almost weekly regarding the CMA exam with many members scheduled to take the exam this year and hope to reach 215+ CMA’s in the Valley. Please see our more about the CMA here.  The upcoming CMA Exam Review Course information is here: CMA Live Test Prep
