The Ozarks Chapter of Association of Governmental Accountants is a local chapter of a National organization that focuses on governmental and not for profit accounting and finance related issues.  We have monthly meetings that provide our members (and non-members) with CPE that many of us need to maintain our certifications – although a certification is certainly not required to be a member, or a guest.  Typically, our member rate is $10 per monthly meeting and the non-member rate is $15 – lunch is always included!  We have our meetings over the lunch hour, close to the downtown Springfield area so that employees can easily attend without missing work.  We also have 2 full day seminars per year – providing 8 CPE each, one in the fall and one in the spring.  Our membership is made up primarily of local government and education institution employees – however, we do have additional members from the State of Missouri and local businesses.  Our organization is a great networking opportunity!  Below are some highlights we have planned for program year 2019-20.

Education -  We have 21 CPE hours planned for program year 2019-20. Mark your calendar now for our two 8-hour seminar dates.  The Fall Seminar, will be November 14th, 2019 and our Spring Membership Seminar will be held on March 26th, 2020. 

We enjoy having guests and would encourage you and your staff to attend our monthly meetings!  If you have any questions about our organization, please let me or someone else on our executive committee know - our contact information can be found on the leadership page.

We look forward to meeting you!

Josefina Garcia, CMA, CPA - President
