About Our Chapter

This Chapter was organized in 1977 and had Articles of Incorporation approved by National AGA on Nov. 9, 1978. Our chapter is the only AGA chapter in the state. We meet approximately once per month, offering 2 to 3 CPEs per event. Meetings begin at 11:30am or 1:00pm and are generally held at a state office building on the state capitol complex in Des Moines. Additionally, we host an all-day spring seminar offering approximately 7 CPE hours. Whether you work for state, federal, county, city, school, or private industry, you're welcome to join our chapter!

About Our National Organization

Since 1950, the Association of Government Accountants has been--and remains today the educational organization dedicated to the enhancement of public financial management. AGA serves the professional interests of financial managers, from local, state and federal governments, as well as public accounting firms, responsible for effectively using billions of dollars and other monetary resources every day. For more than 50 years, AGA has been addressing the issues and challenges facing government financial managers.

Our organization has been instrumental in developing accounting and auditing standards and in generating new concepts for the effective organization and administration of financial management functions, including the passage of the Inspector General Act of 1978 and the Chief Financial Officer's Act of 1990. AGA conducts independent research and analysis of all aspects of government financial management. These studies have led AGA to be recognized as a leading advocate for improving the quality and effectiveness of government fiscal administration and program performance and accountability.
