The IIMA Alumni Association draws its strength from the individual Chapters, just as the Chapters gain recognition and seek guidance from the Association. Chapters may be set up in any location-a city, a state, or even a country—with a minimum of 15 Alumni. The objectives of the Chapters and all their activities are in consonance with the objectives of the Alumni Association. Each Chapter is expected to have an elected Executive Committee, and its own office bearers.
