On May 1, 2019, approximately 300 industry professionals from organizations across the Indianapolis area and surrounding region participated in the Spring 2019 Joint Professional Development Conference (PDC). The event was jointly hosted by the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) Indianapolis Chapter and the local Association of Government Accountants (AGA). The PDC provided attending professionals with quality educational, training, and professional development programming, as well as the opportunity to network with fellow industry professionals.

The event’s theme was “Strategies for Success,” and the day’s host was CPT Jason Reyes, ASMC Indianapolis chapter president. Speakers throughout the day included industry experts and consultants who work with the Department of Defense (DoD), as well as the executive vice president and chief financial officer of the Indiana Pacers. Programming covered a variety of industry-related topics, such as finance, leadership, ethics, accounting, and success in business. These industry topics were closely integrated with the larger stated learning objectives of the PDC:

  • Successful leadership
  • Overview of the city of Indianapolis finance operations
  • Chief financial officer successes
  • Personal excellence
  • Accounting and ethics

MorganFranklin was proud to be a Bronze Level sponsor of the PDC and hosted a booth in the exhibit hall, which enabled us to interact with PDC participants throughout the day. Specifically, MorganFranklin representatives engaged with a number of industry professionals and took the opportunity to share details on the firm’s applicable service offerings in audit readiness, audit remediation, A-123, and data visualization within the DoD financial management realm.

Data plays a role in each of the aforementioned learning objectives and industry topics, so it was no coincidence that it was discussed both throughout the programming, as well as by attendees passing by the MorganFranklin booth. Receiving, translating, and presenting impactful data has been, and is continuing to become, an increasingly important daily task in today’s industry. Having the opportunity to connect with attendees and listen to their problems led to exciting discussions surrounding MorganFranklin’s data visualization solution offerings. MorganFranklin will continue to support the overall professional development of industry professionals through its involvement with regional ASMC and AGA Chapters.
