President's Message

Greetings and Welcome to the IMA Michigan Council Website!

As I write this letter I am thinking about how well the Michigan Council did in the 2016-2017 Competition year.  We had 3 chapters win awards at the Awards Luncheon in Denver and the council once again won the Council Award of Excellence.  We are a great council and I am honored to once again serve as your President.    

The Council will be holding its 16th Annual Fall Conference on October 23rd, and based on the information that I have received, we will have a great conference.  Please continue to watch this website for Registration information regarding the Conference. 

We also have some important news to pass along. Our Website will be changing in the next few months and we look forward to discovering all the new opportunities that this will present.  I want to personally thank Joe Nycum and Lee Bennett for all of their years of managing the present website and hope that going forward they will continue to keep our site one of the best in the IMA.  Hope to see all of you at the Fall Conference on October 23rd in Lansing.  Please feel free to contact me anytime if you need anything from the council.  My e-mail address appears below.  Have a great 2017-2018 competition year! 


Thank you,

John H. Engel, MNA

President of the IMA Michigan Council  2017-2018
