President’s Message
July 2019

In June, we held our last meeting of the 2018-2019 program year. Brittney Williams, CPA, CGFM, a long time AGA member and supporter of the Chapter, spoke on Stress Can Be a Good Thing. The event was held at ASU Skysong on June 12th and was worth two (2) CPE. Thank you to all that attended this meeting.

In July and August we will be on a break while we plan for the 2019-2020 program year. We will have more information later this summer, including dates, times and topics for our events in the coming year. Look for our Chapter e-mails to resume later this summer and check for details on our website. In the meantime we will also reach out to our members to get their feedback on meeting locations and community service opportunities, so please take the time to let us know what you think. Even though the Chapter will be on a break, July is not without opportunities to get your CPE. This is the month that AGA National will hold its annual PDT in New Orleans, for a total of 25 CPE. You can register to attend in person, or virtually, here:

We also have some great news to share from June. This last month, we also had one new member join, Matthew with the State of Arizona, and one member successfully complete all of his CGFM certifications, Jordan with Maricopa County. Welcome, Matthew, and congratulations Jordan! Just a reminder, that the Phoenix Chapter provides multiple resources for our members, so that you can effectively sit for, and pass the CGFM exam. We offer study guides for checkout and an opportunity to be reimbursed for the cost of sitting for the exam, upon successful completion. If you are interested in learning more, please e-mail us at

Additionally, if you have any questions or feedback for us, please e-mail us at, We would love to hear from you.

Thank you for your continued support of the Phoenix Chapter, and we hope to see you soon!

Michelle Huckabay, CPA, CGFM
