The CIMA program is offered in collaboration with the nation’s leading business schools, The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Yale School of Management, and the Booth School of Business, University of Chicago.

“IMCA conferences are unique in that all of the speakers are selected by advisors, for advisors-- product and service providers cannot buy their way onto the program,” said Sean R. Walters, CAE, chief executive officer, IMCA. “All of IMCA’s presenters are not only leaders in their field, but also extremely knowledgeable about topics that are of particular interest to experienced advisors at this time of global change.”
