PDT 2018 in Three Minutes:

Here's what some 2018 attendees had to say about the training: 

"This training event emphasized more than ever that we are at a major turning point in Financial Management. We must implement or expand data analytics and visualization. Let’s embrace the change. Thank you, AGA!" — Lisa Stubbs, Library of Congress 

"As a first time attendee, PDT by far exceeded my expectations. The amount of information and great insights you receive at this training is incredible. Also, being here in person has given me phenomenal networking opportunities and I am excited for how many new friends I have made!" — Christina Freeman, Mid-Missouri Chapter 

"The AGA PDT remains THE opportunity to engage with peers in networking, expand your knowledge, inspire continuous improvement, and lead positive change in the profession." — Randy Stanley, CPA, CGFM, U.S. Department of State, 2018 Virtual PDT Participant 

"This was the most informative training that I've been to in a while. The training event was very well organized, sessions were informative and covered a wide range of professional needs and the technology used to keep participants engaged was top notch!"  — 2018 PDT attendee

"This is an excellent training opportunity for government auditing professionals. It offers a variety of sessions on numerous current issues related to our profession. The AGA staff were excellent to deal with throughout. I personally had an issue with the hotel and AGA staff  intervened and resolved it immediately. I would recommend this training to any government auditing professional." 
— Dave Horn, Senior Auditor

"I enjoyed the 2018 PDT virtual training. It allowed attendees who might not have been able to attend in-person a chance to learn and engage virtually (via the chat box and app) with others who were there in person. Very informative training. Thank you." Patricia  Jones, Library of Congress, 2018 Virtual PDT Participant 

"PDT First-timer - It was refreshing to be able to learn from, collaborate with, and feel the energy of a group of colleagues devoted to the future of financial management. Also, PDT is not just for accountants, it is for anyone who cares about the stewardship of our national financial assets." — Brian Webb, EPA
