AGA—The Thought Leader in Government Financial Management
AGA, Denver Chapter - established 1952.

The Association of Government Accountants supports the careers and professional development of government finance professionals working in federal, state and local governments as well as the private sector and academia.

Founded in 1950, AGA enjoys a long history as the thought leader for the government accountability profession. Through education, research, publications, certification and conferences, AGA reaches thousands of professionals and offers more than 100,000 continuing professional education (CPE) hours annually.

AGA members, who number more than 16,000, are civil servants; local governmental accountants and finance professionals, finance directors, state auditors, federal chief financial officers, academicians and private sector leaders.

They all join for the same reason—access to the organization that represents the breadth of the profession.

We hope that you will find our organization's local chapter a helpful and reliable source of thought leadership in the governmental finance arenas.
