More about AGAP

More than 50 years after its establishment, AGAP is now a venerable institution.  It has remained the same and yet has not remained stagnant, introducing a number of innovations and changes for the welfare of its members.

From a motley group of less than a hundred members, AGAP has grown to its present size of about 10,000 members. Not only accountants have been welcomed to the association. Budget officers, supply officers, cashiers and all personnel belonging to the Finance Group from national government agencies, local government units and government owned or controlled corporations participate, attracted by the feel of family which the AGAP provides.

Conventions are held annually, an event where the awards for Outstanding Accounting Offices are handed out.  There is a more glossy feel to the current annual conventions, having evolved from the homey atmosphere of the conventions of the 60s and 70s.  Yet despite the many changes some things remain the same – learning, sharing, addressing common concerns in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere – the core values of AGAP.
