The Association of Government Accountants (AGA), is the thought leader in government financial management.  AGA reaches thousands of professionals and offers more than 100,000 continuing professional education (CPE) hours annually through its conferences, seminars, audio conferences, and training workshops.

The Professional Development Conference (PDC) is held annually and is the premier national training event for over 2,000 government financial professionals in the federal, state, local, and private sectors. This year, the PDC will explore the enormous fiscal challenges facing our nation and offer innovative solutions to solve them. More than 80 educational sessions in topics such as data analytics, shared services, cost savings, accounting, auditing, federal government financial management, economics, ethics, communications, etc. will be offered.

PDC is the place to hear from rulemaking boards and leaders of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board and the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board on recently released rules and upcoming projects.  Furthermore, attendees learn about the latest initiatives for preventing improper payments, collecting debts, improving the efficiency of benefits payments, and more from top officials at the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Office of Management and Budget.

Through training events and conferences, AGA is dedicated to educating and empowering government financial professionals to advance government accountability and promote transparency to the public. Continuing education is a critical component of the government’s efforts to develop a motivated and productive workforce.
