Greetings Boston Chapter Members,

It’s hard to believe that Labor Day is already here. The
summer started with our beloved Red Sox in 1st place
and thankfully they still remain in 1st place as we will
look forward to a Fall run to the World Series. We will
also look forward to our upcoming Fall Chapter programs.

Over the summer, the Chapter Executive Committee (CEC) and the Education
Committee have been busy planning the upcoming program year. Please visit
our Chapter website, www.agaboston.org, to review our current 2018 – 2019
events program plan. Our next training event is the October 11th annual “Fall
Fraud Seminar - The Many Faces of Fraud - Getting to the Root of Things. he
speakers will be Alexis Bell, MS, CFE, PI, an international antifraud consultant
and the Chief Executive Officer of Fraud Doctor LLC; along with Paul Dunlop,
the Global Head of Fraud & Cyber at GIBC Digital.

The Education Committee is diligently working on topics and speakers for our
January 2019 Winter Seminar and our May 2019 RPDT. We encourage you to
contact our Education Committee with ideas for topics that will apply to your
work discipline.

In the Summer 2018 AGA “Journal of Government Financial Management”
edition, AGA CEO, Ann Ebberts, published an enlightening editorial on “People:
Our Most Valuable Asset” (www.agacgfm.org/Research-Publications). How true
it is!  Our Boston Chapter has prospered over the years with dedicated and
enthusiastic government financial management professionals. This year’s
Chapter goals will include serving our current members, attracting new
members, and promoting AGA’s Certified Government Financial Manager
(CGFM) program.       

I, along with the CEC, look forward to your continued support of our Boston
Chapter and feel free to contact a CEC member or myself at any time. We are
always looking for new ideas and process improvements.

Regards,

Bill
