The First Chapter

What a remarkable journey it has been since that September day in 1950 when Mr. Robert King gathered a small group of federal accountants and began the Federal Government Accountants Association. That charter group had high hopes that FGAA's members could work together to improve government financial management. As it turned out, a lot of other remarkable things happened along the way - things like lifelong friendships, professional growth, personal development and momentous change in government, due in no small part to the efforts of FGAA and its successor, AGA.  It is clear that much has been accomplished as the membership worked together to build an Association that supports government financial managers at all levels while promoting and advocating for the profession. We are accountants, auditors, budget managers, systems managers, financial managers, and much more. We can take pride in the Association that we have built together, rich with a history of promoting excellence in government financial management while enhancing the careers of those who choose to be public servants.
