Greetings AGA Members & Friends!!!
Spring is in the air! Can you feel it? Spring is the season of renewal! The sun is brighter, the birds are chirping louder and the dead brown winter grass is coming alive again! With all the wonderful changes happening around us, this is the perfect time to take a moment to renew your relationship with AGA and your New Orleans Chapter! Maybe you missed a few meetings because work deadlines had you snowed under or you could not quite make the audio conferences because of prior commitments. Please know that we understand, but we miss you! Now is the time to get back in touch with AGA and reacquaint yourself with all that your chapter has to offer! Attend a dinner meeting and network with your fellow members! Participate in a chapter or national community service project with your fellow chapter members or other AGA members from across the country! Consider volunteering for a chapter executive committee assignment! Get involved! Only a few chapter events remain before we end the chapter year on June 30th, so renew your relationship with AGA today! Remember, we are here for you and want you to make the most of your valuable membership!
THANK YOU to everyone who attended our joint meeting with the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance (AFWA) at Five Happiness Restaurant on March 21st! Our speaker was Mr. Raphael Goyeneche of the Metropolitan Crime Commission. His presentation was outstanding and enlightening!
