Access AGA’s COVID-19 Resource Exchange

President’s Message

September 2020

Hello everyone! I am excited to say that the new program year is upon us. We have updated our Event Calendar to reflect the great educational events we have coming up. We will only be hosting virtual events for the remainder of calendar year 2020. We hope to be able to return to in-person events in 2021.

Our first event of the program year will be on the topic of Audio Communications on September 9th at 12:00 pm. This webinar will be produced by AGA National, but registration is available through the Phoenix Chapter. On October 7th, the Phoenix Chapter will be broadcasting an educational event on the topic of GASB 87 leases, with presenters from Grant Thornton.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has required our chapter to look for ways to deliver high quality CPE trainings online. I truly appreciate all of our members bearing with us as we navigated this unfamiliar territory. We plan on utilizing Zoom for our Phoenix Chapter virtual education events. If you are not already signed up, we encourage you to register for our Chapter’s Amazon Smile account. At no cost to you, 0.5% of every purchase you make on Amazon can go towards supporting the Phoenix Chapter!

I would like to welcome the Phoenix Chapter’s newest member, Mitch, from the Maricopa County Budget Office! If you are not a member of the AGA, or let your renewal lapse, and are interested in joining, just go to the AGA website, and click join, or renew. We offer many benefits such as free study materials for the CGFM exams as well as discounted CPE events. We are also always looking for interested individuals to consider joining our Chapter’s Board. I can personally attest to it being an excellent professional opportunity!

With our transition to virtual for 2020, I want to ensure you all that we are as dedicated as ever to providing quality educational events. The Chapter Board is also always available if you have any questions or concerns. I cannot wait to begin this program year!

Sincerely,

Jordan Dale, CGFM
President of the AGA Phoenix Chapter
