See What You Missed at PDT 2019:

Here's what some 2019 attendees had to say about the training: 

"Attending the PDT 2019 was a rewarding experience for me as well as the other PDT’s I’ve attended throughout the years. These training events allow participants to share and receive valuable information that can be taken back to their respective agencies to further the agency’s mission. I have benefited greatly in attending these events as I have brought back information to my agency and have implemented several ideas, such as Intelligent Automation, which has started to scale across multiple organizations within and outside the Finance organization. This would not have been possible had I not attended a PDT and became inspired to bring the idea back to my organization and partnered with my colleagues in Finance and IT to implement this technology. It is my opinion that my agency is receiving it’s ROI by sending me to the PDT as I am constantly learning new ways to be effective in managing resources and bring new technologies to help my organization do more with less. I encourage all PDT attendees to make the most out of the training and networking experiences as they will benefit you both professionally and personally." — Gisele D. Holden, National Science Foundation 

"The 2019 AGA PDT provided invaluable training, I had difficulty selecting a session to attend- so many good sessions! And whether you are an accountant, auditor, IT professional or other professional that interacts with government you have to attend the 2020 PDT!" — Donna Sandoval, CGFM Assistant Commissioner Administrative Services, NM State Land Office

"For my first time attending the National PDT, I was definately impressed with the amount of work put forth by everyone to make this event happen. The networking and training sessions exceeded my expectations and I look forward to more great opportunities AGA has to offer."  — Rachel Hogrefe, Mid-Missouri AGA Communications Director and NCC Representive Missouri Division of Workforce Development

"As a first time attendee, this was a rewarding experience that afforded me a great opportunity to learn from others and to gain a sense for where the federal government is headed in the accounting/financial arena. Motivational speakers encouraged and offered positive perspectives that could be applied to one's career as well as personal life.— Michele Tolbert Moore, Accountant, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Washington, D.C.

"The AGA Staff, PDT Technical Committee, Host Committee, along with the speakers, did an awesome job making the 2019 PDT so spectacular. It was an excellent opportunity to renew acquaintances and make new friends in festive New Orleans. I am so proud to be a member of an organization that continually works to increase government financial performance and accountability." ? — William A. Muench, CGFM, CPA, CFE, AGA Boston Chapter
