ASPA Releases 2016 Annual Report

Washington, DC – The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) today released its 2016 Annual Report, reporting on accomplishments achieved in 2016. Among the most significant were a newly redesigned and relaunched website; continued success for the discipline’s flagship journal, Public Administration Review (PAR); and Chapter and Section growth, better connecting even more of our members to one another.

Just a few of the main highlights include:
  • A month-by-month snapshot of the year’s accomplishments
  • A review of ASPA’s digital enhancements during the year including its redesigned website and social media successes
  • A look at PAR’s success in 2016 and recent prior years
  • An overview of ASPA’s e-learning program throughout the year, including BookTalks, webinars and the Student and New Professionals Series
  • A recap of the 2016 Annual Conference in Seattle
  • A look at ASPA’s ongoing partnerships with likeminded organizations

“What I think you’ll see as you look through the Annual Report is a continued focus on programs, partnerships and services that will make a difference for our members,” observed ASPA Executive Director Bill Shields. “ASPA’s national office can happily say that we expanded content, launched a new and improved website and continued reinvigorating our Chapters and Sections—and connected with an increased number of our members because of it.”

The 2016 report is now available on the ASPA website for download. Contact ASPA chief of communications and marketing Karen Garrett with questions.
