President’s Message – March 2018

Sherri Voigt, CGFM, CPA

Welcome to CGFM Month! Every March, our chapter requests and receives proclamations from the Governor and Madison Mayor declaring March is CGFM month. If you have ideas on another municipal government that we should reach out, please let us know; we would be happy to reach out to other areas in the state of Wisconsin. For more information on the Certified Govenerment Financial Manager certification, please visit the AGA National website at

We have a busy spring with quite a few CPE offerings. Please view the calendar of events. There is also a free members-only webinar on March 15 that National should have sent notices about.

This month is also an opportunity to highlight the career of one of the chapter’s first CGFM members. David Mellem has retired with over 50 years of federal service. I encourage you to see the related articles in the March newsletter.

I look forward to seeing you at one of the upcoming training sessions!
