Welcome to the Central Ohio Chapter
of the Association of Government Accountants!
AGA serves government accountability professionals by providing quality education, fostering professional development and certification, and supporting standards and research to advance government accountability.
Another exciting year for the Central Ohio AGA is underway. Our Chapter Executive Committee (CEC) is hard at work planning for the upcoming months. Central Ohio AGA is lucky to have such dedicated volunteers who continue to improve our program year after year.
Please remember we are always looking for new faces and ideas - consider volunteering throughout the year by participating in a sub-committee or accepting a future CEC role. This is your opportunity to have a voice in our educational and program events as well as promote the accounting profession. Feel free to contact a CEC member to express your interest in volunteering during the upcoming year.
