Include ASPA’s Endowment in Your End-of-Year Giving

2018 has been a year marked by change, challenges and uncertainty. The public service is under pressure as never before. At the same time, we must confront our common problems globally, and all too often it falls to government's professionals to address them. Public administrators are delivering on the lofty promises found in our foundational documents, our laws and our political campaigns. We need to continue to equip public servants to solve problems, argue for the resources they need and demonstrate that public and nonprofit professionals across all services are critical to our well-being.

But for all of us committed to the public good—as scholars, practitioners, students and those new to public service—we know this: The need for effective, efficient and equitable public service is greater than ever. Please show your support with a generous financial gift this holiday season.

There are many reasons to include ASPA in your end-of-year giving. Some are:

  • ASPA has been the leading advocate for the public service, at all levels of government, for almost 80 years.
  • ASPA has demonstrably advanced the status and leadership of women and minorities in the practice of public administration.
  • ASPA is the only professional organization that encompasses the full toolkit of competencies public servants are likely to need throughout the course of their careers.
  • ASPA's members and Sections have built a compelling body of knowledge via a dozen scholarly journals, beginning with the field's leading journal, Public Administration Review.

That is what ASPA is all about and your tax-deductible gift will provide us with critical resources to strengthen our professional development programming for the next generation of public service leaders. It also will enhance ASPA's technological capacity and, most importantly, it will support continued innovation and activities that fulfill our mission to advancing excellence in public service.

Your support at the $25, $50, $100 or even $250 level is absolutely essential to ensuring the future of ASPA and public service.

Our goal is to build the ASPA Endowment to $1 million in 2019, $2 million in 2020 and $10 million in 2030. Those funds will be put to work to:

  • Bridge our practitioner and academic communities.
  • Provide the welcoming place for our next generation of public service leaders to gain the professional skills they need for a successful career.
  • Share proven ways to strengthen our practice and scholarship ... and celebrate those who do it every day.

Whether you make a one-time gift or a recurring one, small or large, what matters most is that you are contributing to the public good. For ASPA, your support will help ensure that the next generation of leaders make us their professional home. For the public we serve, your investment will send a clear message that public service is a noble calling, that our work matters each and every day and that there is much more we can accomplish together. More than ever, ASPA must have a steady flow of resources to serve as a strong voice in support of those values.

Make time now to include ASPA in your end-of-year giving.

Contact ASPA manager of internal and strategic development Garret Bonosky with questions.

KeepingCurrent, BookTalks and Student Webinars on the Horizon

ASPA's webinars are ongoing throughout the year. Averaging 75 attendees per event and free to participate, these e-learning opportunities provide you with valuable insights and information at your fingertips. Visit our website to stay informed about all upcoming webinars including KeepingCurrent, BookTalks and the Student and New Professionals Series.

KeepingCurrent: Decentralization in MENA Region: Comparing (Mis)Use of the Term and the Content
Dec. 13 | 1 p.m. EST
Murat Daoudov, Middle East Development Network [MDN] and ASPA SESAME
Debbie Trent, Moderator, ASPA SESAME

Decentralization has been among hot topics of public administration reforms in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region in the past decade or longer. Much hope has been invested in the potential of strengthened and empowered local governments to provide satisfactory services the traditional centralized administration failed to do. However, a close look at both studies and practice of decentralization in MENA often reveals lack of consistency in the use of the term, "decentralization." This webinar, sponsored by ASPA's Section on Effective and Sound Administration in the Middle East and Middle East Development Network, will look closely at this issue.

KeepingCurrent: Emerging Challenges and Opportunities With Open Data in Government
Dec. 18 | 1 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. EST
David Doyle, City of Seattle
Michael Jacobson, Moderator, King County, WA
Tyler Kleykamp, State of Connecticut
Thomas J. McCabe, U.S. Government Accountability Office

Sponsored by ASPA's Center for Accountability and Performance, this webinar will address the evolution of open data as it pertains to government services. Hear from representatives from the Government Accountability Office, the State of Connecticut and a former City of Seattle open data expert.

Biden Institute Releases Biden Challenge Presentations and Materials

The University of Delaware's Biden Institute hosted the Biden Challenge: How to Revitalize the Middle Class this past September. The Challenge provided policymakers, scholars and nonprofit leaders with a space to discuss solutions to ensure a growing and thriving American middle class. Panel presentations throughout the day discussed policy proposals on key topics that included:

  • Budget priorities
  • Workforce dynamics
  • The role of innovation

If there was one clear takeaway from the conference, it was that the conversation to revitalize the middle class is too great for just a single day. In that spirit, the Biden Institute has announced the launch of the Biden Challenge website. Here you will find complete video recordings from each panel and keynote presentation, as well as a blog section meant to extend the "ideas exchanges" that took place at the conference.

Already posted to the site include blog posts from Vice President Biden, Jos C.N. Raadschelders, Laura W. Perna, Stephanie Hoopes and other contributors. In addition to the growing online content, the University and Institute plan to continue the conversation around revitalizing the middle class, including at ASPA's Annual Conference in March 2019 in Washington, D.C.

In the News

Today's headlines contain plenty of news coverage of some of our nation's most pressing public administration challenges. ASPA has curated some of the most important stories from the past few weeks. If you have not seen these yet, make sure you read them now!


Public Finance

Public Service

Social Equity

In addition to the above headlines, two new reports were released in recent weeks that may be informative.

First, the Local and Regional Government Alliance on Race & Equity released its report, Equitable Development as a Tool to Advance Racial Equity, as shared by the National Civic League (NCL). The report "provides a policy framework for implementation strategies that advance equitable development," addressing urban issues that offset "re-urbanization", including exorbitant housing prices and gentrification. As noted by the NCL, "This policy framework can help cities ensure that economic growth is equitable and that the benefits of growth—including better services, parks, higher quality housing, and public transportation—are available to everyone."

The Brookings Institution also released an equity report, The Devaluation of Assets in Black Neighborhoods, as reported by RouteFifty. According to the article, research from Brookings and Gallup show that homes in majority-black neighborhoods are worth $48,000 less, on average, than similar ones in neighborhoods with no black residents. This report seeks to address the question, "What is the cost of racial bias?" The results are pretty clear. (View the RouteFifty article here.)

2018 ICPA Held in Chengdu, China

The 2018 International Conference on Public Administration (13th ICPA) was held at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC) in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, from November 30 through December 2.

Sponsored by UESTC and ASPA, ICPA is an international academic conference hosted annually by UESTC and a different international university every other year. Themed "Improving the agility of government organizations," this year's event attracted an array of academics and practitioners from countries and regions including China, the United States, Russia, Poland, Singapore, Japan, Korea, South Africa, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Ethiopia, Ghana, Nigeria, Benin, Sudan, Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The conference organizing committee approved 50 papers for discussion at the conference, some of whose authors were granted best paper awards at the conference. Philip Ebow Bondzi-Simpson, director of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), and Kingsley Agomor, a senior lecturer at GIMPA, won first prize with their paper entitled "Financing Public Universities in Africa Through Strategic Agility: Lessons from Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (Ghana)."

"It is the honor and responsibility of UESTC to promote international academic exchange in the field of public administration and to help build a platform for cooperation and exchange in public administration between China and abroad," said Zeng Yong, president of UESTC. Zeng said the ICPA has been growing to become one of the world’s most influential academic platforms in public administration research and scholarship since its establishment. The first ICPA was held at UESTC in 2005.

The 14th ICPA will be held at Syracuse University in the United States in 2019.

SAAPAM 19th Annual Conference Takes Place this May

The South African Association of Public Administration and Management (SAAPAM) will hold its 2019 conference May 7-10, 2019 at the University of Mpumalanga, Nelspruit. The theme of the conference will be, "Public Affairs, Governance and the Fourth Industrial Revolution." Political parties in government are often considered catalysts in providing interventions to addressing some of these basic human needs issues in cases where they have collective value for a society. Classification of government in ministries and departments is an example of providing a focused approach to identify those needs which are inherently to the benefit of society as opposed to individual or private. This begs for an art of public affairs and governance to provide institutional mechanisms to realize set goals for each area. Click here for more information.

New from Oxford University Press: Facing Segregation: Housing Policy Solutions for a Stronger Society

Fifty years after the passage of the Fair Housing and Civil Rights Act, we are more aware than ever before of the damaging effects of segregation and concentrated poverty in America. Research repeatedly shows us poor and underrepresented communities in segregated urban housing markets suffer diminished outcomes in education, economic mobility, political participation, and physical and psychological health. A new volume from Molly Metzger and Henry Webber brings together some of the United States’ most important scholars, practitioners and policy analysts to examine how we can use public policy to reduce segregation in our cities. The volume refocuses attention on achievable solutions by providing not only an overview of this timely subject, but also a roadmap forward for the 21st century. Click here for more information.
