IMA's Hall of Fame

In the June 2016 Fast Takes, my letter from the President floated the idea of having an IMA Hall of Fame. The idea was to honor the many people who came before us, who had a great influence on the industry and who helped many people with their careers. People who were very instrumental in building this channel.

The next thing I know I am getting phones calls and emails telling me what a great idea that was. One of those calls was from Vince Alonzo, the Editor-in-Chief of Incentive Magazine who told me that he liked the idea so much that he was going to write about it in his Editor’s Note in the July/August 2016 issue of Incentive Magazine.

I formed a Hall of Fame Advisory Committee and after a lot of hard work from this committee, I am proud to announce that the IMA Board of Directors approved the IMA Hall of Fame.
