For more than 70 years, the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) at the National level has been addressing the issues and challenges facing government financial managers. 

AGA was founded as the Federal Government Accountants Association (FGAA) by Robert W. King and a group of federal government accountants on September 14, 1950. The Association expanded in 1975 to include state and local government financial management professionals. It was at that time, the organization's name was changed to reflect the composition of its members.

In keeping with that tradition, the Greater Lansing Chapter's primary objective is to contribute to the advancement of financial management principles and standards through educational events, and to promote appropriate utilization of financial management methods and techniques to improve management control and accountability to the public.

AGA Greater Lansing is participating in the Adopt-a-Highway program and will be picking up litter on U.S. 127 between Lake Lansing Rd. and State Rd. three times this year. The next date is Saturday, July 20, 2024.

We are looking for volunteers to help out.  If you’re interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please email Craig Murray at or give him a call at 517-334-8069.
