President’s Message
September 2018

I hope that everyone had a good fiscal year end and summer. With this month, we begin our 2018-2019 program year. As such, we will hold our first meeting on September 12th at 10:30, at ASU Skysong. This will be a webinar on the topic of communication, and is for 2 CPE hours.

We have also updated our full education plan for the year and made this available through our website, and through our Eventbrite site. You can register for meetings and see our full calendar of events on our website, here: https://www.agacgfm.org/Chapters/Phoenix/Training-Events/Event-Calendar.aspx. Click on the event name to register. Besides registering on a per meeting basis, you have the option to register for a package deal. The package deal cost is $220 and includes 13 events. This is a great deal and allows you to get essentially 4 events free, if you pay up front.

If you are member of AGA, you will also want to take advantage of the first of the free webinars that AGA National will be hold. Mark your calendar on September 6th, for Bridging Cost, Performance and Evidence: Building on Insights from the PIO-CFO Summit. This event is worth 1 CPE. In order to register, go the AGA National site, here: https://www.agacgfm.org/Webinars/2018-2019-Webinars/PIO-CIO-Summit-Insights.aspx. This is another great reason to become of member of the AGA.

If you are interested in membership with the AGA and have questions about it, please do not hesitate to reach out to discuss further with us. As your AGA Phoenix Chapter board, we are passionate about Government Financial Management and how AGA can help you get connected with your profession. If you are member already and are looking to get more involved, a great way to do this is to get involved as a member of the AGA Phoenix board. We would love to hear from you as well. Please contact us at contact@agaphoenix.org, or approach me, or other board members, at our next meeting.

Thank you for your continued support of the Phoenix Chapter, and we hope to see you at the Communications webinar on September 12th!

Professional Ethics Update for Arizona CPAs

Constantly updated, this course is designed to meet the Arizona biennial four-hour ethics CPE requirement for CPAs renewing their licenses. In addition to meeting Arizona State Board of Accountancy requirements, the course includes materials designed to reinforce the CPA's practical understanding of professional ethics standards. In times such as those we are facing, all CPAs likely will be dealing with new and difficult challenges. These challenges will require that a CPA has a firm grasp of the professional ethics standards as well as an increased awareness of both accounting and business ethical issues.
