What Attendees Said About PDT 2019: 

"PDT 2019, as well as other PDTs I’ve attended through the years, was a rewarding experience . These training events allow participants to share and receive valuable information to take back to their agencies to further their missions. I have benefited greatly from these events and implemented several ideas, such as intelligent automation.This would not have been possible had I not attended PDT and been inspired to partner with my colleagues in Finance and IT to implement this technology. My agency is receiving ROI from sending me to PDT. I learn new ways to effectively  manage resources and help my organization do more with less. I encourage all PDT attendees to make the most of the training and networking experiences, as they will benefit you both professionally and personally." — Gisele D. Holden, National Science Foundation 

"PDT 2019 provided invaluable training. I had difficulty selecting a session to attend — so many good sessions! Whether you are an accountant, auditor, IT professional or other professional who interacts with government, you have to attend PDT 2020!" — Donna Sandoval, CGFM, Assistant Commissioner of Administrative Services, New Mexico State Land Office

"My first time at PDT, I was definitely 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, Missouri Division of Workforce Development, AGA Mid-Missouri Chapter Communications Director and NCC Representive

"For a first time attendee, this rewarding experience afforded great opportunity to learn from others and gain a sense of where 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.
