Government accountability is key to democracy, and imperative for all citizens to understand — learn how government financial management professionals nationwide hold governments accountable to ensure tax dollars are spent wisely and to reduce fraud, waste and abuse of government resources.

Phoenix, AZ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/05/2017 -- Understanding government finance is paramount to understanding government, as government programs are funded by citizens' tax dollars. Likewise, understanding government accountability is paramount to understanding democracy, as spending oversight is integral to ensuring ethical practices. That's where government financial managers at all levels of government come in: accountants, auditors, grants managers, IT professionals, budget officers, inspectors general and more — everyone who touches taxpayer dollars — plays a role in holding governments accountable to citizens. AGA represents all of those people. Through its vast network of 100 chapters, extensive training opportunities and Certified Government Financial Management certification, AGA helps its members nationwide promote leading practices in government accountability and boost their careers.

"Public-private-university partnership in shaping meaningful public policy and impactful accountability is vital for the staying power of democracy," said Dr. Kas Henry, Host of "Unleash Your Inner Goldilocks: How to Get It Just Right," Voice America, Empowerment Channel. "AGA as an organization brings the collaborative vision and practical value-centric leadership through its continuing professional education and chapter support to help strengthen our democracy and shape our shared journey as citizens."

Ann Ebberts, MS, PMP, became AGA's CEO in October 2014 after providing management consulting to federal government clients for more than 30 years. Her expertise is in process improvement, program evaluation and shared services. Douglas Glenn is a high-ranking financial official in the federal government and AGA's immediate past national president. Glenn is passionate about articulating the value government financial managers bring to taxpayers. Together, Glenn and Ebberts will discuss current issues, opportunities, challenges and trends in government financial management, the perception of government work, and more.
