AGA-Saint Louis “The Gateway to the Best”


President's Message

Dear Members, Collogues, and Sponsors,

Together with my fellow board members at the AGA St Louis Chapter, I wish you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous 2021-2022 New Year! I am humbled, honored and privileged to assume the AGA St Louis Chapter Presidency for 2021-2022. I am deeply grateful to my predecessor William Kraemer (2020-2021) and Past Presidents Toni Swedlund (2019-2020) and Tony Malley (2018-2019), for their leadership and outstanding contributions to the AGA St Louis Chapter. I am inspired by their commitment to AGA St Louis and all their achievements.


As I enter as President of the AGA St Louis Chapter, I notice that our Chapter, and the AGA National, has never been more relevant and important for those of us practicing a variety of business skills in public and the private sectors as Senior Executives, Business Analyst, Accountants, Financial Analyst, Auditors, Contractors, Comptrollers, Data Security Specialist, Automation Technician and the many other who are supporting everyday health of business regardless where the office maybe. I've come to think of the AGA network as a vast, best-in-class association with different business practices that support and share our challenges, opportunities, and successes. Regardless of the changes around us, AGA continues to provide abundant opportunities to learn, teach, mentor, and share the best business practices in Government and in private industry.


As we move into this year, our Chapter is focused on finding meaningful engagement for our members and coworkers through community service, CGFM development, Lunch and Learn Courses, Newsletters, Professional Development Training (National PDT, July 19-21, 21 CPEs) and our Social Media AGA St Louis connections of AGA Chapter News, FaceBook,Twitter and LinkedIn. The AGA St Louis chapter will continue to grow our collaboration with other AGA chapters to support offering various learning events and topics to help provide professional development. As well as continuing our community outreach opportunities. We hope this year you are excited and encouraged to take part in a variety of activities. We encourage you to invite family and friends to join us in our community service efforts and the open learnings to expand their professional development. AGA St Louis strives to be an inclusive environment regardless of where we work or work from.


Thank you, members, for your continued participation and enthusiasm in our professional community for your incredible support in advice. Finally, I'd like to give a special shout-out of appreciation to our past and new Chapter Board of Directors as well as our Sponsors (CGI, FI Consulting and Morgan Franklin Consulting) for their tireless work on behalf of the AGA St Louis Chapter and the AGA National organization for all the resources and guidance and support they provide every day. Special thanks to Jennifer L. Whitaker for her past many years of volunteer service as our Webmaster, Michelle L Bransford service as Community Service Director, and Michael Harris service as Communication Director. Thank you all!


I am wishing you a good and successful 2021-2022 and looking forward to seeing you soon.


Cynthia L. Cooper
