Leadership and Governance

Per its bylaws, AGA is governed by a National Board of Directors (NBD), made up of present and former elected national officers. AGA’s National Executive Committee (NEC) implements policies for AGA on the NBD’s behalf. Many members take on leadership roles within the national organization through boards and committees that address certain issues or perform specific tasks, such as the FMSB or Journal Editorial Board.


Ann M. Ebberts has been AGA’s Chief Executive Officer since October 2014. Ebberts has more than 30 years of management consulting experience with the federal government in financial management, financial process improvement, program evaluation and shared services. She also provided project management and advisory support services for the implementation of accounting, acquisition, travel and grant management systems.

Ebberts manages a staff of more than 20 people in Alexandria, Va. to accomplish the strategic goals of the NBD and NEC by developing educational and networking events to inform members and interested parties about current legislation and key initiatives impacting the financial management community. National office staff work closely with members as they join, become leaders in chapters, pursue certification and attend education and training events, and works with government officials as they seek guidance on increasing accountability and transparency.


AGA’s national presidents each serve a one-year term and chair the NEC and NBD. The 2016-2017 president is Douglas A. Glenn.

Glenn is currently serving at the Department of Interior as the DCFO and Director of the Office of Financial Management. Prior to that, he served as the Finance Director at NASA and the Deputy Chief Financial Officer for Financial Policy and Operations at the General Services Administration. His career includes a mix of audit, consulting, operational, and management positions.
