Government accountants: Virtual training event, just ahead

All large organizations—for-profit, nonprofit and public sector—rely on careful management of financial resources to achieve success. The U.S. government and the agencies that make it up are no exception to this rule. 

The Association of Government Accountants has as its mission to support and further the training of financial professionals across the federal sector. The latest: AGA this week is reminding government financial professionals that the 2021 Professional Development Training conference is gearing up in Nashville, to be held July 19-21. For attendees the event offers an all-virtual option—easing attendance and removing potential travel concerns and costs. 

“AGS is the association for professionals that support government at all levels, academia, non-profits, and industry and work in the areas of financial management, accounting, auditing, IT, budgeting, policy, grants,” the organization states. “Members boost their careers through AGA education and the Certified Government Financial Manager certification, and by taking advantage of opportunities to network, and share ideas and solutions.”

With a wide range of training, speakers and other sessions to be held, the organization expects over 2,000 federal, state and local financial professionals to participate in the conference. Some events are brief, others—such as certain trainings—include multiple sessions over several days. 

“Participants gain skills and knowledge toward more effective leadership, performance in a cost-constrained environment, solutions to shared challenges, and best practices. Join us to learn from top government financial management professionals and industry experts,” AGA states. 

You can follow announcements and schedules leading up to the event on Twitter, at #PDT21.
