Message from the President

AGA Phoenix Chapter

March 2023


Hello everyone! It is hard to believe that we are already headed towards Spring and we can see that the Chapter’s Program Year is coming to an end!  That means that your Chapter Board and Committees have to finalize their plans for next year and your participation and input is always valued! We plan to host more both live and virtual events to better meet the needs and preferences of Members.

But I hope all of you will still check out our Events Calendar to see the great educational events we have coming up for the remainder of this program year. I encourage all of you to plan to attend our Professional Development Training (PDT 2023) on April 28th at the ASU SkySong 1 at 1475 Scottsdale Road. All the details are on our website at Keith Orr (our Chapter’s Education Chair) has put together a truly outstanding agenda of meaningful and insightful speakers who (in my opinion) will provide CPE that will inform and excite you about the future in various professional areas. I hope to see all of you there

If you are not a member of the AGA, or have let your renewal lapse, and are interested in getting involved, just go the AGA and click join or renew. We are also always looking for individuals to consider joining our Chapter Board and Committees. I can attest to it being an excellent professional opportunity based on my personal experiences throughout my career!

I would like to welcome our newest Student Member, Evan Kearns to our Chapter! I hope to see Evan and each of you at one our events this year! If there is any way I can help you just let me know at

Thank you for your continued support of the Phoenix Chapter! Please let us know if you have any comments and suggestions by e-mailing us at: Thank you and have a great and safe Spring!!
