Welcome to the homepage of the AGA Ozarks Chapter. We are a local chapter of a nationally recognized member organization with a focus on government financial management professionals, non-profits, and more. We lead and encourage change that benefits our field and all citizens. We provide training events, continuing professional education, professional certification (CGFM), and networking opportunities to help members build skills and advance their careers.

The Chapter Executive Committee (CEC) is made up of leaders from multiple local agencies. You can find the list of roles and contact information under “Chapter Leadership” using the “Our Chapter” menu.

Check out our chapter newsletter, The Ozarks Ledger, also located using the “Our Chapter” menu for a one-stop shop filled with up-to-date news, financials, CEC meeting minutes, governmental job opportunities in the Ozarks, and upcoming local, regional, and national events.

Our event calendar can be found under the “Training & Events” menu, where you can find a list of locally planned networking and CPE opportunities, and register for the next event. All professionals and guests are welcome as these events are not strictly limited to governmental financial employees.

Please stay a while to browse our website, and when you are finished, visit the AGA National website from the link in our menu. There you will discover even more about who we are as AGA members, what we do, gain access to research, publications, standards and guidance as well as find out about upcoming training, events, and learn more about the CGFM certification.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
