Hello, I am excited to be writing to you as the incoming Board President of the Platte Valley Chapter of the IMA. I am honored to be leading such an important professional association, which I have been a member of since 2015. Over the past few years of my membership with IMA & Platte Valley I have had the opportunity to meet with many members from all over the world. This experience has increased my enthusiasm for the management accountant’s profession and the value it brings to organizations.
For those that I have not met in person I would like to introduce myself. Unbeknownst to me I have been in the management accounting profession for over 30 years but did not proclaim it until 10 years ago when I progressed into my current position as Controller of H & M Trucking in Omaha. In addition to this title I also identify with Wife (husband Don), Mom (3 adult children), Grandma (5 little ones), and Sergeant (retired from the Nebraska Army National Guard).
To those that are not members, no matter what stage you are in your career, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to join IMA and the Platte Valley chapter as we continue to bring value to our members in the form of professional development and explore this new “normal”.
I am looking forward to meeting and collaborating with all our members in the coming years.
Patricia (Patty) Rupp
