President's Message

I am delighted to welcome you to the 67th year of the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) Washington, DC Chapter’s commitment to advancing government accountability and service to the members and the profession.  

My goal for the DC Chapter is to actively engage and collaborate with our members, sponsors, industry leaders, and wider governmental financial community.  These are exciting times for the Washington, DC Chapter as we continue to offer opportunities to engage with your colleagues in the profession.  

Our Chapter Board of Directors and Committees have developed dynamic program offerings to engage our members throughout the program year.  As you participate in these exciting programs, please remember these programs are made possible by the generous support our sponsors and volunteers.  

This year we will offer numerous activities and programs to promote collaboration and networking for our members.  We start the program year with the annual picnic with AGA Chapters from the Washington DC region and culminate, with the annual Awards Gala at a new and exciting DC location.

Throughout the year the AGA Washington DC Chapter is committed to providing cost-effective education and training.  We strive to add value with cost effective learning opportunities including our signature monthly luncheon programs, premier two-day financial management training, free webinars/audio conferences, Certified Government Financial Management (CGFM) courses, and mentoring programs.  

By popular demand, we will continue our tradition of supporting community service programs to provide opportunities for our members to “pay it forward” to the Washington DC community.   

The AGA DC leadership team has worked tirelessly to develop activities throughout the year and is committed to serving the needs of our members.

I am honored to serve as the AGA Washington DC Chapter President and want to encourage you to not only take advantage of the myriad of opportunities to learn from industry thought-leaders and grow professionally and personally, but also to promote the AGA to your colleagues who have not yet discovered the benefits of membership, using your personal experiences as an example.  I look forward to participating with you at our program events.
