Happy CGFM month!!!! If you have ever considered the Certified Government Financial Manager certification, this is a great time to apply. There is a special running through March 31 that will give you one free exam voucher, a $125 value. Visit https://www.agacgfm.org/exampromo for details and to start the process. We have received CGFM Month proclamations from the governor and City of Madison mayor. These are included on pages 5 & 6 of the newsletter.
The Symposium speakers are confirmed and we are just working out some last details on titles and agenda times so the full information can be posted/sent out. I hope to see many of you out there on Wednesday, May 11. Union South surprised us a little this year by moving up the dates for meal and chair counts by a week. Please note that registration cuts off Tuesday, April 26. You can register via email or on our website (soon) and be invoiced later.
We have set up a webinar on Wednesday, April 20. Kinney Poynter, CPA, NASACT Executive Director, will be speaking on “State and Local Government Emerging Issues”. This will be worth 2 CPE.
AGA National has changed our logo for the organization and the CGFM certification. Also, our name has been shortened to “just” AGA. See all the details in this month’s Footnotes.
We have started planning for the fall and have a fraud speaker lined up for a 2 CPE webinar on August 23. If you have any topics you would like to see offered as a webinar, please let us know. Education chair Mary Laufenberg is great at finding speakers and building on your ideas (firstname.lastname@example.org).
