American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) announced today its Annual Conference titled Saluting the Public Service. The Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia between March 17-21, 2017 and more information is available on http://www.aspanet.org/Conference2017.
The conference represents the profession of public administration in the US and has an international chapter, and links to international conferences and affiliations. Syracuse University's Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs is one of its member organizations for faculty, students and affiliates.
In conjunction with the conference, two symposia will be held, with this author attending the Fred Riggs International Symposium in March 2016 in support of the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN ENABLE, 2006).
Social equity welcomes award winners and members at its Gloria Hobson Social Equity Luncheon, and Women in Public Administration will be hosting its Annual Breakfast. Business meetings for Chapters and Sections are already scheduled for the conference event.
The current ASPA President for 2016-2017 is Dr. Susan Gooden of Virginia Commonwealth University which also chairs the social equity committee (Blue Wooldridge) whom I met at the mid-year meeting in Arlington, Virginia in Fall 2015.
ASPA Members interested in Public Administration and Disability as a Permanent Section are requested to contact: Julie Ann Racino and Allan Bergman, Public Administration and Disability Committee Co-Chairs, American Society for Public Administration, 1730 Rhode Island Ave., NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20036.
