AGA NLT: The Training Event for Federal Financial Management Leaders
AGA hosted another stellar event at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center last week. The AGA NLT (National Leadership Training) bought hundreds of leaders together from Federal agencies and private sector to discuss shared services, millennials in the workforce, risk management, change management, and a variety of other topics.
While OMB Deputy Controller Mark Reger taught us what to do to prepare for the Presidential transition, we also learned the importance of leadership skills such as negotiating, transparency, and continuous improvement. Each day was filled with engaging speakers as well as plenty of time to network and share ideas with fellow event-goers.
I was surprised at the variety of event attendees who stopped by the Management Concepts booth. From IT professionals to Accountants to State Comptrollers, it seemed like everyone was enjoying this years’ NLT and looking forward to PDT this summer.
I was also thrilled to see the eight students who were part of the Collegiate Leadership Program sponsored by AGA who attended the event. Great way to bring in the millennials, AGA, and show these students how exciting it can be to work in the Federal government!
Thanks also to recent Federal Spotlight interviewee Tony Scardino who stopped by AGA last week; see you in Anaheim in July for PDT 2016!
