Purpose of the InitiativeAGA's Member/Citizen-Centric Reporting Initiative is intended to foster an innovative means of communication between governmental and non-profit organizations and their citizens/members. AGA believes that financial information should be provided to citizens/members in forms that are clear and understandable, updated regularly and often, delivered to all, easy to locate, honest in breadth, and technically accurate in detail.  Member/Citizen-Centric Reports detail an entity's finances in a visually appealing, clear, and understandable four-page document.  AGA believes that these reports will make governments and organizations more accountable to their citizens/members, and will help Americans become better educated and better able to participate in government and organizational activities.

In January 2016, Route Fifty, a GovExec state and local daily publication to connect people and ideas, asked AGA to produce an article on CCR for their recent e-book on Budgeting.  See the article, "Citizen-Centric Reporting: Informing the Public Is the Government’s Responsibility".
