Student Relations

East Bay - Northern California Members have the responsibility to aid in the growth of their talent and well roundness. The purpose of this alignment is to support the schools' finance and accounting education with actual industry practices, situations, and environment. Scholarships are given annually to well-deserving students from California State University—East Bay (Business Department), Chabot College, Las Positas College, and Ohlone College. The East Bay - Northern California Chapter is currently in the process of reviving it's relationships with other local Colleges and Universities. 

For those of you who would like to help young students learn more about accounting and finance, we have a solution! We're putting together a small team of four or five professionals from the IMA chapter who can visit community colleges as a team. This team will interact with the students in a very informal non-threatening atmosphere to answer all the questions new young students have about the profession of accounting and finance, but do not have the opportunity to ask! Here's your chance to participate. Contact Brian Carlson at
