President's Message

From Chapter President Jonathan DeBoer:

Greetings and welcome to the 2017-2018 AGA Program year!

I am excited to work with our board of talented and dedicated government financial management professionals in bringing you another enriching year of AGA events. The board has begun planning several events for the month of September and the year beyond. Upcoming in September are a few fun events, such as the early careers barbeque that we jointly host with the chapters from Northern Virginia and DC. This will be held on September 30 at Hains Point. In addition, our first monthly meeting will be held on September 13th at Lebanese Taverna in Bethesda with networking beginning at 6:30. As we did last year, we will be planning to hold one dinner meeting in Prince Georges County this year.

Our Education Committee has begun the process of planning our annual December CPE event. Stay tuned for more developments on that. If you have any topics you would like covered or have something that you would like to present at either the December or spring learning events, feel free to reach out to education@marylandaga.com. Our Certification Committee will be helping those of us who wish to become CGFMs during the year achieve that goal through programs and scholarships.

Other things to look forward to this year include social events from our Membership and Early Careers Committees as well as opportunities to give back to the communities that we live and work in through our Community Service Committee.

Remember to check our website regularly as we have new events and programs posting frequently. If you have any questions or suggestions for any of our events or would like to become more involved in our chapter, please email me at president@marylandaga.com. I want this to be a year of professional growth and enjoyment for all the members of our chapter, so if there is something that you feel we should be doing differently or something new that you think the chapter should be doing, I would love to hear from you.

I’m looking forward to a fun and fulfilling year ahead!

Jonathan DeBoer, CGFM
Chapter President
