Happy August! I hope everyone is
having a good summer and you’ve
all had a chance to spend some time
with family and friends, whether at
home or on vacation.

Last month Boston hosted the AGA National Professional

Development Conference.  It was a major success.  AGA
was hoping for over 1.400 people to attend.  We had in
excess of 1,900 people come to Boston, both physically
and virtually for the event.  We even had a large
contingency from Guam fly over to be here and explore
the city.  Thanks to all of the Chapter Members that
worked at the event. We also had a number of Chapter
Members speak at the event including two of our
constitutional officers.  Governor Charlie Baker and State

Auditor Suzanne Bump each had keynote speeches in the
main conference room.

In July we also held our member / potential member golf
tournament at Mt Hood Golf Course.  It was a hot day but

with a nice breeze and some of the scores were also hot.  
Results are listed in later in the newsletter.  Many thanks
to VP of Membership Caitlin Hogan for organizing and
running the event.

This month we are rebroadcasting two of last year’s
training events.  Out October Fraud Training and our
January Winter Seminar.  Each of these are worth seven
(7) CPEs so check them out.

The Training Committee is working hard to set up the
upcoming training sessions.  The October Fraud
will be held on October 12’Th and registration is open.  
Check out our web site at  This session
will also have collections for charitable organizations as
we do every year.  Details to follow next month.

If I don’t see you before then have a Great Labor Day
we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
