It's been an epic year for the Internet Marketing Association (IMA), now with over 50 established, local groups around the world, with 200 more identified. Our International Executive Council (IEC), Women's Leadership Group (WLG), CMO100 and IMA.EDU initiatives continue to expand in membership quantities (collectively over 250). And IMPACT17 in Las Vegas was our most outstanding conference to date - a small recap can be found here.

Please also take a moment to read about our coveted IMA holiday bash which occurred last week in Beverly Hills to a standing room only, featuring celebrity agent, Josh Flagg.

These achievements are all thanks to our global members, individual leaders, extraordinary partners, highly distinguished speakers and panelists, and everyone associated with this awesome organization - together we thrive!

The result is an unmatched platform for professionals to share and transform Internet marketing strategies along with business leadership and executive networking (while having FUN!).

We're certain that 2018 will build on this momentum and create new and exciting opportunities for your personal and professional growth.

Feel free to share your ideas and feedback with me 24/7!

Happy New Year!
