Jay Leno, the comedian and former “Tonight Show” host, is scheduled to help the Institute of Management Accountants mark its 100th anniversary in June in San Diego.

Leno will open the IMA conference with a comedy show for attendees during a keynote address for the conference, which runs June 15-19 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina, celebrating the IMA's centennial year.

Leno hosted the "Tonight Show" from 1992 to 2009, and then after briefly hosting a prime-time series while Conan O’Brien took over the "Tonight Show," Leno returned to host the late-night show from 2010 to 2014. After that, he began hosting another series, "Jay Leno’s Garage," which still runs on CNBC.

Other speakers scheduled for the IMA conference include Mike Walsh, a futurist and best-selling author, as well as Matthew Luhn, a former Pixar animator, story artist and author, and Amy Vetter, a CPA, yogi, technologist and Inc.com and Accounting Today contributor.

More than 1,000 professionals are expected to attend the conference. Attendees will be able to earn more than 28 CPE credits and 27 NASBA-eligible credits. For more information, visit http://www.imaconference.org.
