What we do:
The Evergreen Chapter is one of the most active in the American Society of Public Administration (ASPA). We present seminars, networking events, and social activities to draw our members together. Governed by a board of directors elected by our membership, each board member serves a two-year term. In addition to board members, the board president also may appoint up to three graduate student representatives to sit on the board.
The American Society for Public Administration is the largest and oldest organization of public sector professionals in the country. With over 10,000 national members, representing practitioners, academics and students, in government, universities and nonprofit organizations, we have programs available to anyone who has an interest in improving governance.
ASPA advocates for:
Greater effectiveness in government
Agents of goodwill and professionalism
Publishers of democratic journalism at its very best
Purveyors of progressive theory and practice and providers of global citizenship.
ASPA believes that by embracing new ideas, addressing key public service issues and promoting change at both the local and international levels, we can enhance the quality of lives worldwide.
