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 (FGAA). The FGAA later expanded to include state and local government finance professionals and changed its name to the Association of Government Accountants (AGA). The AGA has worked to support government financial management at all levels and enhance the professional growth and personal development of its members — resulting in lifelong friendships and momentous change in government finance. We are proud of the Association that we have built together, with a rich history of promoting government financial management excellence while enhancing the careers of our members. Our AGA D.C. Chapter includes accountants, auditors, budget and systems managers, and other financial professionals. Our Chapter especially welcomes members who are students, early career professionals, and retirees.
