Message from the President

AGA Phoenix Chapter

May 2023


Time is flying by, as we are wrapping up our program year. Please check out our Event Calendar to see the great education events we have coming up this month. We plan to host virtual-only events for the remainder of the program year.

Our annual Professional Development Training (PDT) was held on April 28th. We have two remaining events this program year. A webinar pm Fraud/Data Analytics on May 10th and Leadership on May 24th.

We are always happy to hear from our Chapter members! We regularly check our event feedback, and we are constantly working to improve. If you are not a member of the AGA, or  your renewal has lapsed, and are interested in joining, just go to the AGA website, and click join or renew.

I would like to welcome our newest member, William Arritt. Will is a Captain in the U.S. Coast Guard and is relocating from Washington, DC to Scottsdale. We are happy to have you joining our Chapter!

There are many membership 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!

The Chapter Board is also always available if you have any questions or concerns. We have listened to the feedback we have gotten on our most recent survey. We will offer both online and in-person events, when possible, to meet all preferences. I am looking forward to the great learning opportunities that the remainder of this program year brings!
