What Attendees Said About The First Ever 100% Virtual PDT 2021: 

"It was great to have gained access to subject matter experts from a wide variety of accounting and budget backgrounds. We have a strong community of professional at the Federal and State levels, and it was helpful to hear their individual constraints and successes. Training was both fun and interactive. I look forward to the PDT 2022. Great job PDT team and speakers!!" — Michelle Waller, Office of Inspector General 

"PDT covers a wide range of important topics that keep me up-to-date in the financial management world. With all the great top notch speakers who share their best practices and insights, PDT is THE training that financial management must attend!" — Thomas Chin - Washington, DC Chapter

"The PDT is always such a great educational opportunity. Every year, it is full of a variety of topics / lines of business. It exposes you to innovation and new ideas, highlights issues currently being addressed in the financial community, how politics, federal regulations and guidelines are impacting all levels of government, and personal development opportunties. You can network with individuals on the leading edge, with people who are experiencing similar challenges, and pass on what you have learned to others." —  Carol McFarland, State of Oklahoma

"My name is Zia Maqsood, and I am a University of Baltimore student. We will start AGA on our campus next semester, and I am honored to be the first president. I am also a federal audit intern at KPMG. I honestly loved the whole three-day event. I am looking forward to learning more from AGA mentors, and I will do my best to encourage my fellow students to be a part of such a great organization." — PDT2021 Attendee

"AGA's PDT 2021 was so well planned, and the best professional development I've been a part of. The speakers were very well versed in their topics, and were extremely engaging in the panels and discussions held. The topics spanned all parts of accounting and finance, and had something that peaked all my interests. I was able to refresh my knowledge on certain topics, gain knowledge on new topics, and see how other agencies are dealing with similar situations of my own agency. It was great to be able to speak and interact with other professionals in this area. Highly recommend any of AGA's events." —  Lisa Weber DLA Troop Support
