Our Chapter

The Montgomery/Prince George's County Chapter of AGA is a diverse group of financial managers, accountants, and auditors. Members come from CPA firms, federal, state and local government. Meetings provide a opportunity for members to share information with others interested in financial topics. Each dinner meeting has a guest speaker that discusses a topic related to accounting, auditing or financial management issues. Additionally, the dinner meetings provide an opportunity for networking.

All members of the AGA serve the public interest in accordance with the highest ethical principles. As such, our members abide by the following code of ethics and professional conduct: AGA Code of Ethics.

It costs $35 to attend for non-government employees. For state, local and federal government employees, we are offering a reduced fee of $20. For students, we are offering a reduced fee of $15.
