Access AGA’s COVID-19 Resource Exchange



From Chapter President Betsy Chapman:

As we navigate through this crisis and have learned new methods of working and learning, we have also utilized new ways to reach our members. As many of you know, events have had to be canceled or rescheduled. This year, the National AGA provided an opportunity so we can access a new platform for meetings. We are excited to announce there will be a fall conference held virtually through this new platform on October 28, 2020. More information will be coming out about this soon! If you don’t already receive AGA emails, please contact to be added to the group.


One of my goals as President this year is to increase membership. There are many benefits to being a member of the AGA from discounted prices on training/CPE to the network you are connected with through your membership. If you or anyone you know would like to become a member, please visit the AGA website at Another goal is to increase the number of CGFMs in the Charleston Chapter. Virtual study groups are provided to help prepare for the exams. Currently, the study group is in Book 2 – Governmental Accounting, Financial Reporting and Budgeting. It is free to participate and new participants are always welcome to join. If you would like to be included, please email me at


I look forward to working with everyone this year and hope that we can get back to having in-person meetings again soon. In the meantime,


Take care, stay safe and stay healthy!


Betsy L. Chapman, CGFM
