President’s Message
July 2017

The audio-conference, Digital Evolution of the CFO, on June 17, 2017 marked the last scheduled event for the program year 2016-2017.  However, just because there will be no programs offered for the next couple months, there is still a lot going on.  As summer begins, we will spend time planning ahead for the program year to come, and will hold our next program event during the month of September.  Now is the time to indicate your interest in assisting on the Board, or submitting your feedback, so that we can plan and sculpt the education program that you would like to see for the upcoming year.  You can reach out to us at .


On July 9th through 12th, AGA National will hold its Professional Development Training (PDT) in Boston, Massachusetts.  This event will offer 24 CPEs and can be attended in person, or virtually.  This event is a good way to stay on the cutting edge of your profession, to improve your job effectiveness and a way to network and connect with others.  In order to learn more about this event, visit the AGA website here: .


At the PDT, our Chapter will receive the Platinum Award at the July 12th ceremony. This news is very exciting for the Phoenix Chapter. The Platinum Award is the highest one a chapter of AGA can obtain, and recognizes a great year of programs for our members.  The Chapter Recognition Program is managed by AGA National Office and consists of eight areas:  Chapter Leadership, Education, Certification, Communications, Membership/Early Careers, Accountability, Community Service and Awards. Credits for various activities in each category are earned as the chapters implement certain things in their program, like producing a monthly newsletter. This is a way that AGA National guides its chapters towards producing a successful program and focusing toward shared priorities.

Thank you all for a successful program year.  It can be even better in the coming year, if you get involved, or give us your feedback, so please don’t hesitate to do so.  Have a great summer all!
