President’s Message

June 2021

Hello everyone! Time is flying by, as we are wrapping up our program year. 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 May 12th, we had the AGA National event, Audio Fraud Data Analytics. On June 9th we have our final event of the year, Best Practices in Preparing a SEFA and Grants Management. The presenter will be Shauna Brewster of HeinfeldMeech.

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, Rey Sanchez. 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!

We are looking to move back to a hybrid model of in-person and virtual events for the next program year. 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!
