President’s Message

May 2022

Hello everyone! It is hard to believe the program year has nearly finished. Please check out our Event Calendar to see the great educational events we have coming up. For the remainder of the program year, all events produced by AGA National will be online only. Locally produced events will follow a hybrid model, where individuals can attend online or in-person at ASU SkySong.

Our annual Professional Development Training (PDT) was held on April 29th. We have two remaining events this program year. On May 11th, we have a webinar on Fraud/Data Analytics. On June 8th, we have a webinar on Leadership.

We are always happy to hear from our Chapter members! 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, Angela Estrada. 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!

I would like to welcome our newly appointed program year 2022-2023 members!
President: Nicole Martinez
Vice-President: Amber Hill
Treasurer: Michal-Anne Miller
Secretary: Joshua Jumper

The Chapter Board is also always available if you have any questions or concerns. We have listened to the feedback we have gotten on our most recent survey. We will offer both online and in-person events, when possible, to meet all preferences. I am looking forward to the great learning opportunities that the remainder of this program year brings!


Jordan Dale, CGFM
President of the AGA Phoenix Chapter
