Component Web Services Develops Online Speakers Bureau for IMA

Fairfield, NJ, October 10, 2011 – IMA, the association for accountants and financial professionals in business, selected Component Web Services (CWS) of Fairfield, NJ to implement IMA's new Speakers Bureau. Accessible to professional conference and meeting planners nationwide, the easy-to-use microsite (now in beta testing) provides qualified speakers to keynote, moderate, or participate on panels and roundtables at finance and accounting-related events, meetings and conferences across the country.

"The IMA Speakers Bureau is a resource to facilitate connections between event organizers and IMA members," IMA President and CEO Jeffrey C. Thomson, CMA said. "IMA's thought leaders and technical experts offer great diversity and experience across an array of business topics, including leadership, regulatory matters, performance management and improvement, XBRL, risk management, sustainability reporting, and more."

CWS was chosen for the assignment based on its long history with IMA. Says Thomson, "We've worked with CWS on a variety of projects, most recently the redevelopment of our main website, In addition to the firm's deep IT knowledge, they know our organization — our value proposition, vision, and mission — and immediately grasped what we wanted to achieve."

CWS President and CEO Kevin B. Kimmel said that his firm was pleased to once again assist long-time client IMA in strengthening its online presence. "We created a microsite that extends the experience of the main website,” he said. "The Speakers Bureau allows conference planners to connect with skilled, knowledgeable presenters in particular areas of expertise."
