President's Message

Greetings fellow North Penn IMA members!

Happy Spring - my how this year has flown! Our upcoming May meeting, the last of this year, is a joint meeting with the American Payroll Association SEPA Chapter. The topic is Employee Engagement, presented by Dr. Annie Kingcade at William Penn Inn. SEPA is the local professional organization for Payroll & HR specialists since 1987! The vision of SEPA is to empower their members with effective tools to meet the challenges of payroll through continuing education, career development, recognition, and rewards. SEPA seeks to foster an environment of communication focused on promoting our profession by raising the standards of Payroll and HR.


The North Penn IMA is here for networking and to assist members on their career path. Please check out the newsletter and website for a current open position. 

Your board is in planning mode for the 2019-2020 IMA year beginning July 1, 2019.  We would love your feedback on ways to enhance your experience of being a member of the North Penn IMA, and to increase attendance at technical dinner meetings and breakfast meetings.  If you attended the April meeting, thank you for completing the short survey. Please give us a call, drop us a line, or give feedback or complete survey at our May meeting. Some thoughts to date are to 

1)  have fewer dinner meetings at the William Penn Inn, 

2) and/or hold one or more dinner meetings in King of Prussia or Lansdale (by the turnpike), 

3) have a second 2 CPE breakfast meeting in lieu of one or two dinner meetings, 

4) have buffet style meals at some meetings


What do you think?  Do you have other ideas?  You can let us know confidentially at or leave a voice mail at 215-273-4998.  Talk it up at the meeting! Your co-Presidents or other board members would be happy to hear from you directly as well.
