Welcome to the Central Ohio Chapter

of the Association of Government Accountants!


About Us


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.

2016 AGA Golf Outing

It is that time of year again to sign up for the Central Ohio AGA 2016 Golf Outing. We are hoping to make this outing the best one yet. The outing will be held at New Albany Links Golf Course on Friday, May 20.  New Albany Links is located in New Albany and offers a challenging layout as one of Central Ohio’s most beautiful courses. The outing will once again be a four person scramble format. The registration fee will be $35 for AGA members and $55 for non-members. The Registration Fees will include green fees, cart, lunch,  a great gift to participants, and prizes.


The Golf Outing will begin at 8:30 am, with registration beginning at 8:00 am. Following the round of golf, we will wrap up the outing with prizes and an awards ceremony around 2:00pm.


So invite co-workers, family, friends and clients for a fun relaxing day of networking and golf. This is one of the first outings of the year to fine tune your game or just get out of the office to enjoy the spring weather. If you do not have a complete foursome, please sign up and we will do our best to pair you up with others.
