Access AGA’s COVID-19 Resource Exchange

President’s Message

April 2021

Hello everyone! It is hard to believe that our Professional Development Training event will be happening at the end of the month. Please check out our Event Calendar to see the great educational events we have coming up. We plan to host virtual-only events for the remainder of the program year.

On March 24th, we had the AGA National event, Audio Cybersecurity. On April 7th, we will have Kenny Kang – sponsored by the Pun Group. On April 21st, we will have the AGA National event, Audio CARES Act. On Friday, April 30th, we will have our all-day Professional Development Training event.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has required our chapter to look for ways to deliver high quality CPE trainings online. We plan to continue to use Zoom as our primary platform for virtual events. We regularly check our event feedback, and we are constantly working to improve. If you are not already signed up, we encourage you to register for our Chapter’s Amazon Smile account. At no cost to you, 0.5% of every purchase you make on Amazon can go towards supporting the Phoenix Chapter!

If you are not a member of the AGA, or let your renewal lapse, and are interested in joining, just go to the AGA website, and click join or renew. I would like to welcome our newest member, Tiansheng Chen. We are happy to have you join! There are many membership benefits, such as free study materials for the CGFM exams as well as discounted CPE events. We are also always looking for interested individuals to consider joining our Chapter’s Board. I can personally attest to it being an excellent professional opportunity!

As we look to continue with virtual-only events, I want to ensure you all that we are as dedicated as ever to providing quality educational events. The Chapter Board is also always available if you have any questions or concerns. While we have not been able to meet in person, I am so happy to see the high levels of turnout we have had for our educational events. Please be safe and enjoy the spring!


Jordan Dale, CGFM
President of the AGA Phoenix Chapter
