2019/2020 AGA DC Chapter President

Greetings Members,

During the December luncheon we had the pleasure of hearing from John Hill, Assistant Commissioner of the Office of Financial Innovation & Transformation, Bureau of the Fiscal Service. The presentation included insights on a unifying vision for financial management. Additionally, thanks to the generosity of our members, we made a significant donation to children and families in need through or support of Toys for Tots.

This time of year is traditionally a very busy time for our Chapter. In the short few months since the beginning of Chapter’s program year, we have produced informative luncheon programs, hosted free audio conferences, conducted member services events and early career programs. Notable upcoming events include:

Holiday Happy Hour at Clyde's in Chinatown on December 18

Washington Capitals vs Carolina Hurricanes at the Verizon Center on January 13

Monthly Luncheon featuring Monica Valentine, Executive Director of FASAB

AGA DC Mentorship Program Orientation on January 29

This momentum continues in 2020 with the highly anticipated Federal Financial Management training program taking place in March. This training program offers 16 continuing education credit hours, including instructor-led ethics training. The New Year also welcomes opportunities for members to collaborate and network during numerous activities planned to demonstrate leadership and mentoring.

Thank you to our Sponsors, Officers, and Directors for your support, volunteer time, and dedication to AGA and the profession. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next monthly luncheon in January.

Happy holidays and have a safe and Happy New Year!

Sincerely,

Malena Brookshire
2020 AGA Washington, DC Chapter President
