IMA Meeting March 2017

posted Feb 23, 2017, 1:14 PM by IMA Savannah



Good morning good Savannah IMA community and friends.


We are hoping that you have made your reservation to hear "Tipper A" Roomy Khan speak to us on March 2. If you haven't yet, then please take time out today to make your reservation at https://www.armstrong.edu/armstrong/eventdetail/iia-ima-joint-meeting .


Your attending talks such as this keep our community informed, improved, and working together. Your support of the speakers we bring in is greatly appreciated by the speakers as they seek to get their message to the accounting community. 


And, I realize that it is a busy time for all of us. I am sure that the two hours at this event and the good lunch will be a great break from your month-ends and related work. Plan to attend and plan this very welcome diversion for your schedule! You will thank yourself afterward, I am sure.


As noted previously, we will be able to have a bite to eat with our fellow Savannah IMA members (we always have a great time!), Savannah IIA, Savannah GSCPA, and other accounting and other professional community members in an informal setting with a great speaker to boot.


So, please take advantage of this opportunity and set your calendar for 11.30 am March 2. 


To remind us all, we thank Georgia Southern University's School of Accountancy and their Center for Forensic Studies in Accounting for their work in bringing Ms. Khan to the community. She is speaking to some other groups in Savannah and Statesboro so we are lucky to have her make time for us.


Ms. Khan will provide us with a two CPE-hour presentation ​on Thursday, March 2, at Armstrong State University. The specific room is Ballroom A in The Armstrong Center​. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. and the presentation will begin at noon.​​ There is plenty of easy parking.


Ms. Khan's introduction:

My name is Roomy Khan, and I was involved in Operation Perfect Hedge, which led to the indictment and conviction of over 90 individuals connected to the hedge fund industry. I aided the investigation and was known as “Tipper A.” After seven years of undercover cooperation, I was sentenced to 1 year in a Federal Prison, which I served in Colman Florida.

My story was profiled on CBS’s 60 minutes, “A rare look at how insider trading works” and there has been extensive coverage by numerous media outlets including the New York Times.
