Welcome to the AGA Trenton Chapter official website. 

This chapter serves the professional interest of financial managers responsible for effectively using billions of dollars of resources at all levels of the government. Through a comprehensive series of educational and professional development programs, a broad-based network of chapters, and the publication of newsletters and professional journals, AGA supports those professionals responsible for the fiscal business of government.

The membership represents New Jersey State government as well as financial managers from Federal, County and local levels of government and the private sector.

Mission of the Trenton Government Accountants:

The Trenton Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) is a leading advocate for improving the quality and effectiveness of Governmental fiscal management. To this end, our goal is to carry forward the purpose of the AGA itself - to promote continuing education, development and professionalism in the areas of government financial management and to promote opportunities for community service.
