Be Rewarded with the Gleim CMA Scholarship Program!
Gleim is proud to introduce its new CMA Review scholarship program. We’re very excited to announce all of the improvements we've made to our new 2016 CMA Review System. Therefore, we want to give candidates who may not otherwise be able to purchase our review system an opportunity to study with the best system available.
I hope you will participate in next week’s (1/28) webinar for Texas Educators as it will give you some great insight on the tools and resources that IMA has available for accounting and finance students and educators, see email below for more information and to register. Please share this information with your colleagues.
In addition, I want to make you aware of the following:
The Dodge Brothers made this video in 1920 obviously to promote their rugged vehicle. I cannot imagine how the vehicle negotiates that mud without a limited slip differential. And the scene where they turn it back over and rol up thw unbroken windows is a true classic. It is hard to imagine a Jeep in 1942 doing what this dodge did in 1920.
Dodge would make a truck for WW II that as loater re branded as the Power Wagon.
