National Defense University iCollege’s Ricardo Aguilera and Gary Maupin Win the AGA 2011 Educator Award
The NDU iCollege is proud to announce that Ricardo Aguilera, Associate Professor of the college’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Academy, and Gary Maupin, Professor and CFO Council Faculty Chair of the CFO Academy, won the 2011 Educator Award from the Association of Government Accountants (AGA). AGA supports the careers and professional development of government (federal, state, and local), financial professionals and annually recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the education and training of government financial managers.
Criteria for the nomination directed that candidates show they have made a significant impact on government financial management or advanced the state of the art of government financial management. Both Aguilera and Maupin were chosen for the award due to their outstanding contributions in educating CFO students, developing educational curriculum, and demonstrating leadership at the CFO Academy. The U.S. Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Council, with the sponsorship of the Department of Defense (DoD) Comptroller, launched the CFO Academy in the summer of 2008 at the National Defense University’s Information Resource Management College (NDU iCollege). The CFO Academy offers graduate-level courses and services for mid-to-senior-level personnel in the government financial management community to prepare them to create and lead the strategic and financial aspects of the 21st Century government organizations.
Awards will be presented to recipients at the 60th Annual Professional Development Conference and Exposition to be held on July 10-13, 2011, at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Atlanta, Georgia. Congratulations to Ricardo and Gary!
