Greetings Boston Chapter Members,

Our Red Sox are on a roll, playing in the World Series,
and the Chapter is also on a roll after completing our
first major event, the “Many Faces of Fraud Seminar”
at Lombardo’s on October 11th. The Fraud Doctor
LLC speakers, Paul Dunlop and Alexis Bell provided
a very dynamic and interactive session, “Getting to the Root of Things”, where
they identified and explained the concepts of critical thinking and how it can be
applied to professional judgment in auditing, accounting and governance
situations.

We would like to thank the attendees for their participation, charitable donations
and completing the survey with their candid opinions. Overall, the results were
very favorable, but we did receive some great feedback on how we can improve
this annual event in the future.  For those of you who were unable to attend, I
hope you were able to take advantage of our online replays.

On October 22nd, led by our Chapter Director of Professional Certification, Malé
Kamya, I, along with Julie O’Sullivan and Stetson Marshall, visited Stonehill
College to discuss the value of CGFM certification, financial management
career paths, internship opportunities, and AGA’s free student e-membership
process.

Our next Chapter training event will be on November 28th, when we will hold our
first audio conference (3 CPE’s) on “Ethics”, at RSM in Charlestown. We will
provide lunch at 12 Noon, a live speaker at 1 PM, and the webinar from 2 to 3:50
PM. Members are free and there is a minimal charge of  $25 for non-members.

On December 6th, we will have our annual “Christmas in the City” Holiday
fundraising luncheon at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Boston. All funds from the
raffles, will be donated to the nonprofit charity, “CHRISTMAS IN THE CITY”.  We
will also be collecting unwrapped toys for the charity. Please visit our website
(www.agaboston.org) to register today for these awesome events.

Thanks for your continued support of the AGA Boston Chapter and GO RED
SOX!!!!

Regards,


Bill
