ALGA is a consistent and strong resource for you and all local government auditors. We provide you an excellent value in a variety of areas:

  • ALGA has seen expanded use of our advocacy efforts as more audit organizations’ purpose is challenged.
  • ALGA is a recognized professional association whose input is valued by standard setting bodies through our feedback on standard setting exposure drafts and through a position on GASAC.
  • ALGA’s peer review program is unrivaled in providing benefits to organizations in addressing compliance with professional standards (yellow and red book peer reviews).
  • ALGA continues to offer excellent continuing professional education through training and increased webinars and regional trainings.
We should be able to change you over in the database without a problem.  If there are any issues, please contact ALGA Member Services.

Retired members will pay for a membership of one individual.

ALGA will establish professional agreements with professional associations, such as AGA, NASACT, the Intergovernmental Audit Form, etc. Dues for other organizations will be based on the size of the organization. For a few of our associate members, we will have to use professional judgment on what constitutes the “organization”. For example, for a state audit organization, it would be based on the size of the audit function, rather than the broader organization. Please contact ALGA Member Services to discuss.
