About Our Chapter

Mission

The Maine Chapter of the National Association of Government Accountants serves government accounting professionals by providing quality education and fostering professional development and certification. Monthly meetings provide a chance for State of Maine and local government accounting employees to meet and network, discussing pertinent accounting and management issues.

Key Initiatives (Strategic Plan)

Membership & Outreach Initiatives

The chapter will look into obtaining email lists for non-AGA members who may see vaue in attending our audio conferences. In particular, organizations with missions involving finance whose members may need to earn CPEs to maintain certifications (i.e. CIA, CPA, CGFM,etc.).

Education

Work toward sustainable operational practices. Conferences to be offered will be selected based on topics with highest interest levels and months most prone to weather cancellations will be avoided, to optimize our profit/loss profile, while still offering members this valued service.

Programs & Technical Meetings

Work toward sustainable operational practices. The member and non-member charges to attend meetings will be raised slightly to reduce the chapter's operating loss.

Ideas and preferences for meeting topics will continue to be solicited from chapter members and topics that have generated substantial interest in the past will be given preference.

In our selection of programs, we will strive to cover topics that are timely and address the biggest challenges and highest interest for the membership.

Community Service

The Maine Chapter will continue in its history of service to the community for the upcoming year. Our service programs only increase in true value to the public in times of economic hardship and we will strive to give help and support to worthy and needy organizations.
