Access AGA’s COVID-19 Resource Exchange

From Chapter President Freda Jackson:

Dear Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

I would like to welcome everyone to the 2020-2021 program year. I have served on the board since 2016 in various capacities and had the pleasure of learning from an extraordinary group of past-presidents. I am beyond thrilled to build off the successes of the prior program years and execute a plan that has been worked on by the various board committees since the summer months.

Due to COVID-19, we were forced to postpone our 2019-2020 awards ceremony until September 16, 2020, but as a result of the hard work of our board, we successfully held it virtually. We would like to build off that as we host our monthly meetings virtually until it is safe to return to in-person. We have heard our members and one of the things that we will be doing this year is rotating our meetings between dinner and lunch events to accommodate for competing priorities amongst our members. Our first event is scheduled for Wednesday, October 7th. This event is free for all, but going forward, we will offer free events to our chapter members and a small fee for non-chapter members. Keep checking the events tab on our website (, and you can see all of the upcoming events, including meetings, workshops, community service programs, and early careers events. More events are added every week, so check back often. Also, connect with us on Facebook , LinkedIn, and Instagram for updates as well!

We are putting together a member satisfaction survey and will be sending that by October to determine if there are other benefits that you would like to see the chapter offer. It’s important to me that this chapter meets all of your needs. If you have comments to share or would like to learn more about how to get involved or join the board, please don’t hesitate to contact me at If you are not yet a member, please consider joining us for the exciting things we have planned this year.


Thank you,

Mathew Wenzel, CPA, CGFM, CISA
