For more than 60 years, the Association of Government Accountants 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 finance professionals. At that time, the organization's name was changed to the Association of Government Accountants (AGA).

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

The Greater Lansing AGA Chapter conducted its first meeting on August 9, 1979.  The chapter received its charter from the National AGA on September 25, 1979.  The chapter began with 66 charter members.  At the end of the 2017-2018 program year, the chapter had 116 members with 32 (27 percent) of its members holding the Certification of Government Financial Manager.  The chapter continues to provide low cost quality education at its professional development trainings and monthly luncheon meetings for its members and others serving the government financial management community.
