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 alsohot. 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 FraudSeminar will be held on October 12’Th and registration is open. Check out our web site at agaboston.org. This session will also have collections for charitable organizations as we do every year. Details to follow next month.
