About Us

In 1976, some distinguished professionals in Lucknow, under the leadership of Late Mr. T.N. Dhar then Secretary, Planning, Govt. of U.P. came together and with patronage of the then Chief Minister Sri Narayan Dutt Tewari, Lucknow Management Association was formed as a local chapter of AIMA. Establishment of IIM at Lucknow in 1984 gave fillip to LMA’s endavours in proliferation of Management knowledge and taking the management movement forward. LMA hosted a number of distinguished management speakers in its lecture meetings, a practice which still continues.

Over time, LMA grew in size and stature and linkages. Sometime in 2000, it decided to work beyond management and, after considerable internal brainstorming, LMA adopted for itself a set of Mission, Vision, Values and Beliefs, which are recited in all LMA meetings and which thereafter guided all its activities. In the same year 2000, LMA got its first recognition with an AIMA award for best local management association in category 4. Since then, it has been a steady growth and LMA graduated to higher AIMA categories.

“We got the Best LMA Awards in category 2 in the two consecutive years 2006-07 and 2007-08. LMA continued to improve the number, diversity and quality of programmes over all these years. Based on our membership strength, LMA came in AIMA's category 1 in 2008-09 but in 2013-14, were reverted to category 2 with change in AIMAs’s criterion of categorization of LMAs. We got Best LMA Award in category 2 in 2013-14 and subsequently again in 2014-2015 AIMA also included us among the top eight local management associations in the country and gave us non rotational membership on the AIMA Council. This fulfilled one of the two visions articulated by LMA about 10 years back and strengthened our committement to work towards the larger second vision, i.e. making a contribution in making U.P. Uttam Pradesh in time to come.”
