Accounting Club Receives Excellence Award from National Group

September 18, 2013

ATHENS, Ala. - Athens State University’s Accounting Club was recently selected to receive the Institute of Management Accountants’ (IMA) Gold Certificate of Excellence Award for the year 2012-13. In order to earn this award, the Accounting Club and its officers had to complete a rigorous list of requirements such as sponsoring educational and professional activities and hosting community service events.

The Accounting Club and its academic sponsor, Associate Professor of Accounting and Department Chair Linda Hemingway worked this past academic year to not only meet but to exceed the requirements.

“The true reward in all of this is that the students’ hard work is now nationally recognized,” states Hemingway. “It provides them opportunities that they would not otherwise have, and being a part of this accomplishment will certainly be advantageous to them in their professional career and a bright spot on their student experience.”

The Accounting Club at Athens State, through its affiliation with the IMA, strives to create a vibrant organizational community for students majoring in the business fields. The club provides students with the tools to compete effectively in the professional business community through education and networking opportunities and community and university involvement while building a framework of highly ethical behavior.
