Golden West Regional Council

The Golden West Regional Council (GWC) is one of twenty-four USA Regional Councils within the Institute of Management Accountants. Its purpose is to provide a pool of resources to assist the local IMA Chapter in attaining the objectives of the national and local organizations. Our Council brings together Eleven Chapters in Northern California, Northern Nevada, and Hawaii to participate in activities that may be too large for a Chapter alone to sponsor.

The council activities include participation in and sponsorship of Leadership Training Sessions, Chapter Management Seminars (CMS) for officers and directors, Reno Educational Seminar and Training (REST}, hospitality suites at the Annual International Conference, social events, and formation of new chapters.

The Council teams with chapter leaders and members to share successful chapter strategies and experiences that will assist chapter leaders in moving their chapters ahead with a positive direction. Regional Directors are assigned to chapters to provide advice, counsel, and assistance of their respective Chapter.

The following Chapters and Student Chapters are supported by the Golden West Council: 


Central California Chapter
Diablo Valley Chapter
East Bay - Northern California Chapter
Fresno Area Chapter
Peninsula-Silicon Valley Chapter
Redwood Empire Chapter
Reno Area Chapter
Sacramento Chapter
San Francisco Chapter
