Awards & Recognition
AGA honors members for service both to the association and to the government financial management profession. We bestow awards based on peer nomination to those who have exemplified principles of leadership, transparency and financial stewardship.
AGA’s Professional Development Training (PDT) awards, annually recognize individuals for their contributions to AGA and the government financial management community.
These awards, presented annually at AGA’s National Leadership Training (NLT), primarily recognize individuals for their contribution to the government financial management profession.
In addition to the awards already described, AGA has other national awards presented by committees other than the National Awards Committee.
AGA grants scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students pursuing finance careers in an effort to grow the government financial management community and support current and future practitioners from the beginning of their careers.
Are you or a family member pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in disciplines such as accounting, economics, finance, information systems/technology or public administration? If so, consider applying for an AGA academic scholarship!
AGA celebrates the commitment and determination shown by members reaching several membership milestones. Individuals who have remained paid members for at least 40 consecutive years are awarded Lifetime Membership status. The commitment and determination shown by these individuals has made AGA the strong, vital organization it is today. As a token of their achievement, each of these individuals was presented with a Lifetime Member certificate. As Lifetime Members, these individuals no longer pay AGA membership or chapter dues.
