We are excited to announce a new benefit for our certified members:
This month we will launch digital badges for those who have earned their CMA. You can showcase your accomplishment of earning the CMA and share your badge on social media sites such as LinkedIn. The digital badge signifies your active status as a CMA and explains that you’ve demonstrated mastery in the skills of planning, analysis, controls, decision support, and other critically important skills. By clicking on the badge, a potential employer can learn more about the certification and also see that you’re an active CMA.
You will be receiving two e-mails from IMA stating your badges are ready to be claimed. Setting up your badges is easy and only takes a few minutes.
Once you receive the e-mails, follow these four quick steps:
1. After you click on the “claim your badge” button, click on “claim with new account” if you are a first-time user. You will use the e-mail that is attached to your IMA account to create a log in.
2. Click on the badge you wish to claim and then click “claim badge.” Choose the “my credentials” option in the dropdown menu to complete this step.
3. Click “view badge page” and go to the “share” section on the top right. Click on the LinkedIn icon and select “add to profile as certification.”
4. Ensure you click the “save” button to add the badge to your certification section on LinkedIn. Note: LinkedIn may prompt you to update your profile and you can choose to skip this step. Please refresh the page to view your badge.
Make the most of this opportunity by sharing it with your social and professional networks on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other channels.
We anticipate that this new benefit will help you share your great accomplishment and also spread the word about the CMA, the world’s leading credential in management accounting.
