From Chapter President Freda Jackson:

Dear Members, Colleagues, and Friends,

The Montgomery/Prince George’s County (MPGC) Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) has received inquiries from our members and the public concerning our approach to Coronavirus COVID-19 as it relates to recently scheduled events. We have been closely following the guidance from global, federal, and local health officials, such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as preventative measures to reduce the spread of Coronavirus COVID-19.

Given the uncertainty of today’s environment and out of caution and concern over the health of our members and guests we will be postponing the following events until May 2020 (refunds will be made upon request):

  • Spring Workshop (April 2);

  • Dinner Meeting (April 8th); and

  • Crab Feast (April 21).

We are cancelling the Wizards Game event (April 3) and are investigating other sporting activities when it is safe to gather.

Additionally, we are seeking alternative means to interact with the University of Maryland Accounting Class as the University will be temporarily moving their sessions to an online only format during the time of our scheduled visit (March 31). In lieu of an in-person dinner meeting in March, we are recommending our members and colleagues to take advantage of the free AGA Webinar, "Women's Leadership" March 18th from 1:00pm -2:50pm to earn 2 CPE credits. This event is open to members and non-members, register here.

Our CGFM Study Group will continue to meet remotely.

We greatly appreciate the support of our members, sponsors, speakers, board members, colleagues, and friends during this time and look forward to working with you all in the near future.

Should we receive additional guidance from AGA National and/or government officials to cancel future events we will update the membership as soon as aware.

Please continue to monitor the situation and take the necessary precautions as recommended by the authorities to protect the health and safety of yourselves, family, friends, and colleagues.


Sincerely,

Freda Jackson
MPGC AGA President
