ANNOUNCING ASPA FORUMS

ASPA has launched a new initiative: the ASPA Forums. These face-to-face convenings serve as a medium for the Society to inform the debate on critical policy and policy management issues. The first Forum was held Wednesday, May 14 in Washington, DC. For each forum ASPA will partner with an organization to feature experts on the policy and management issue.

The inaugural forum featured a partnership with the Association for Federal Enterprise Risk Management on “Managing Risk In A Time of Uncertainty: What Executives and Managers Need To Know.” Speakers included risk management expert Thomas Stanton as well as risk managers at the federal level.
