A Message from the President:

Dear Members and Friends,


It’s my honor and privilege to serve as the Trenton Chapter Board President for the 2018-2019 Program Year.  I have been with the Board since 2011 when I was awarded the Membership Scholarship Award.  The hard work and dedication of the entire Board is amazing.  Our Past Presidents have shaped our Chapter into what it is today and I look to continue that path and pass it on to future Trenton Chapter Presidents.  I hope to make everyone proud!


I think we have a tremendous year planned.  As always, we have our Fall Seminar in October and Spring Symposium in April, along with four dinner meetings.  However, we are starting our program year with a Happy Hour as a thank you to all our members.  We are also looking at increasing our volunteering this year to help give back to the community.


As a Chapter we believe that education is pivotal to career advancement.  We are increasing our webinars from six to eight this year to provide our members with additional CPE opportunities.  Also, please take advantage of our Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM) Achievement Scholarship.  The scholarship reimburses up to $250 for the cost of study materials and exam fees.  You must be an AGA Trenton Chapter member in good standing, a government employee, must have passed two of the three parts before applying, and must fill out the scholarship application before taking the final CGFM exam. 


Looking forward to a great Chapter year and looking forward to hearing from you.  If you have any ideas or issues, I’m always available.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
