Call to all current Evergreen Chapter Members!

Hello ASPA Evergreen Chapter Members,

The Evergreen Chapter nominating committee is seeking members to serve on the Evergreen Chapter board of directors.  Directors serve two-year terms and are responsible for overseeing chapter affairs and programming. Regular meetings are held monthly either in person or by conference call.

The Evergreen Chapter has a long history of providing innovative professional development opportunities for members and others interested in public administration.  It’s a small time commitment, that pays significant dividends in helping our profession through the region.  Our chapter is also very fortunate to be hosting the 2016 National Conference in Seattle, WA.

Chapter programs are frequently developed and implemented in collaboration with one or more partner organizations including the Seattle Management Association, City Club, the Municipal League of King County, Blacks in Government and the Association of Washington Cities.  The chapter has ongoing relationships with MPA students and the academic community through partnerships with public administration programs at Seattle University, The Evergreen State College, University of Washington and Troy University.

Board member nominations are open to all current members of the Evergreen Chapter.  We strongly encourage you to express an interest in serving on the board by replying to this email and including a short statement of interest by August 10th.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you!
