Our mission at the Massachusetts Municipal Auditors' & Accountants' Association is to facilitate the development of closer relationships and better understanding among those concerned with municipal accounting and finance in Massachusetts, and support the discussion and analysis of problems relating to municipal finance under the laws of Massachusetts, and discover other objectives of mutual interest between Massachusetts municipal accounting officers.
In March 1985 the Massachusetts Municipal Auditors’ and Accountants’ Association (MMAAA) established a Certification Program to provide a measurement of achievement for governmental auditors and accountants. The Program, which is purely voluntary and restricted only to members, is offered by the Association to advance the professionalism of its members.
Members who pass both the Practical (Accounting) and Legal examinations and meet all of the educational and experience requirements are recognized as a Certified Governmental Accountant (CGA) by the Association. The examinations, which are very in-depth, test a member’s knowledge of municipal accounting and law.
The examinations are held at the Annual School (usually at U-Mass, Amherst in March), and the certificates are awarded to those newly certified members at our Annual Meeting (usually at Cape Cod in June).
