President's Message

President’s Message: Hewitt Stuart, CFM, FMP

August 2014

Greetings All-

As President of IFMASA and on behalf of all board members, I would like to thank you, our membership, for nominating such strong candidates and electing a great group to serve as board members for this next year. I also want to thank our outgoing President, Michael Burmood, for his guidance over the last year. His calm demeanor and wisdom have helped the Chapter continue to grow steadily.

Our membership participation is paramount and our Chapter’s success depends on member and sponsor involvement.  I call on you, our members and sponsors to support our meetings, socials and other events throughout the year.

 As we move forward into the 2014 – 2015 fiscal year, our focus is to strengthen the communication between IFMA International and our Chapter. We are also reaching out to other chapters to share knowledge with them and implement new strategies that have been proven to work for those chapters.

Our educational events will remain an important aspect of our Chapter’s goals and objectives, and we will continue to host events that are beneficial, as well as, educational to our Professional Members and Associates. Another objective this year is to engage with our Associates more and have them participate at each of our meetings and socials. We would like our Professional Members to look at our Associates first when they need professional services. 

Please visit Southern Arizona Chapter calendar for upcoming meetings and events. I look forward to seeing you at events throughout the year.  


Hewitt Stuart
