Update from the President –
Your Olympia Chapter AGA provides you with a great resource and networking opportunities to improve your skills and share best practices with your colleagues. Our chapter provides excellent training (both free and at a discount for members), mentoring and lasting relationships with a great group of professionals. We are offering a wide variety of training opportunities this year. The topics include fraud detection & prevention, ethics, internal controls as well as current events such as the legalization of marijuana in Washington State.
Our Chapter prides itself in giving to our community by volunteering in local charities such as the YMCA Fun Run as well as provides scholarship monies to local colleges in order to support local accounting students. Remember that we are nothing without our members; everything we do is for our members and is accomplished with our members. We are always welcoming new members to join the AGA. If you want to get involved as a member please join at http://www.agacgfm.org/.
In the upcoming months, you can anticipate chapter elections and I highly recommend you consider serving. If you would like to give your career a boost, the AGA is a great way to do it. The chapter President, by design, is also a member of the AGA National Board of Directors. This gives you national exposure as well as providing you an opportunity to really make a difference. As my term is coming to an end this position along with a few others are seeking fulfillment. If you are interested in joining our board and being a part of a dynamic group of professionals please send your letter of interest and resume to email@example.com.
Our Chapter promotes and supports our Officers and Directors to take advantage of several opportunities offered by AGA’s National Office. We send various board members to attend the National Professional Development Conference Meeting as well as the Sectional Leadership Meeting to discuss the challenges facing AGA chapters at the local and national level.
As always, it is a pleasure serving you.
