Update from the President –
The Association of Government Accountants (AGA) is a national organization whose primary focus is on advancing government accountability and servicing government accounting professionals by providing quality education, professional development and certification as well as supporting standards and research to advance government accountability. The national office has over 100 chapters with more than 15,000 members across the country. The AGA puts an emphasis on government accountability and is the conduit that brings professionals together who wouldn’t normally have access to each other. Networking members can actively participate in association activities through all chapters throughout the Nation. Membership offers an opportunity to exchange ideas, network with peers and gain exposure to governmental financial management issues.
Throughout the year, the AGA sponsors programs allowing participants to earn Continuing Professional Education (whether free or at member discounts) to maintain licenses and certifications as well as to enhance professional growth and personal performance. In today’s fast paced business environment, it’s difficult to keep up with the latest issues and changes within the government accountability profession. The AGA provides assistance by ensuring that programs and educational events continue to provide the latest information on changes in government fiscal policy, procedures, and reporting requirements. Our chapter has also provided scholarship funds to local colleges in support of our local communities and to make the AGA organization known by young future professionals.
We are actively seeking new members to join our chapter and would be excited to have you join our team and bring new and innovative ideas to our Chapter.
We are governed by a Chapter Executive Committee (CEC) consisting of officers (President, Past President, President Elect, Treasurer, and Secretary) and Directors (Education, Membership, Publicity, Scholarship, CGFM, Community Service and Webmaster). Our board meets once a month to conduct chapter business and plan chapter educational events.
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.
We are actively recruiting new board members for the following positions:
• President Elect
• Education Chair
• Publicity Chair
• Registration Chair
If you are interested in joining our board and being part of a dynamic group of professionals please send your letter of interest and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It has been a pleasure serving you.
