IMA - Networking since 1974

In 1974, Sonia Vanular started what is now known as IMA. She was a firm believer in networking and remained active in IMA until her late nineties. It is our privilege to continue her legacy and keep IMA relevant to all our peers.

We believe that the strength of IMA is our face to face meetings and events - especially in an age where everything is digitalized. Digital is great - but meeting another human being in person, connecting, relating and discussing without the problems of programs not working, connections going down etc - that is very special today.

On these pages you can read about the history of IMA, our founder Sonia Vanular, the fund we set up in her memory - and much more.
