Access AGA’s COVID-19 Resource Exchange

Welcome to the homepage of the Ozarks Chapter of the Association of Governmental Accountants. We are a local chapter of a nationally recognized member organization for government financial management professionals. 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.

We have an incredible leadership team, called the Chapter Executive Committee (CEC), made up of local financial professionals. You can find their roles and contact information from the “Our Chapter” menu.

Check out our chapter newsletter, The Ozarks Ledger, from 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 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!

Nathan Ziegler, CPA - President
