What 2019 Attendees Said About the Training: 

"Attending PDT 2019, as well as the other PDT’s I’ve attended throughout the years, was a rewarding experience for me. These training events allow participants to share and receive valuable information that can be taken back to their respective agencies to further their missions. I have benefited greatly from attending these events and implemented several ideas I brought back, such as intelligent automation, which has started to scale across multiple organizations both within and outside of the finance organization. This would not have been possible had I not attended PDT and been inspired to bring the idea back to my organization and partner with my colleagues in Finance and IT to implement this technology. It is my opinion that my agency is receiving ROI from sending me to PDT. I am constantly learning new ways to be effective in managing resources and bringing new technologies to 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 

"The 2019 AGA PDT 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 the 2020 PDT!" — Donna Sandoval, CGFM, Assistant Commissioner of Administrative Services, New Mexico State Land Office

"My first time attending the National 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

"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 of 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 PDT 2019 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
