About Chapter

About Chapter:

Bahrain’s Chapter (#0958) of the Institute of Management Accountants was chartered in February 2020. The local chapters are the backbone of the organization. Managed solely by dedicated volunteers, the local chapters provide an added layer of community and personalization to IMA Membership. Chapter events include networking and professional development. Members involved in local chapters have developed lifelong friendships through their hard work, involvement and volunteerism.

IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) is the worldwide association of accountants and financial professionals in business. Founded in 1919, we are one of the largest and most respected associations focused exclusively on advancing the management accounting profession. 

We invite our members to discover the myriad possibilities within the profession and build an actionable future in management accounting.
