AGA—The Thought Leader in
Government Financial Management

AGA supports the careers and professional development of government finance professionals working in federal, state and local governments as well as the private sector and academia. Founded in 1950, AGA enjoys a long history as the thought leader for the government accountability profession.

Through education, research, publications, certification and conferences, AGA reaches thousands of professionals and offers more than 100,000 continuing professional education (CPE) hours annually.

AGA members, who number more than 16,000, are local finance directors, state auditors, federal chief financial officers, academicians and private sector leaders. They all join for the same reason—access to the organization that represents the breadth of the profession.
