We are pleased to announce that NASPAA President, Laura Bloomberg, has named the 2021 NASPAA Annual Conference Chairs. Dr. Gloria Billingsley, Professor, MPA Program Director, Department of Public Policy and Administration at Jackson State University and Dr. David Van Slyke, Dean, Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University will co-chair the conference, which will be a continuation of last year's conference theme "building the new civic square." "We have an unprecedented opportunity to build a more responsive, equitable and just society and I think NASPAA and the accredited programs it represents are positioned to have national impact and be levers of change in their countries, states and local communities," Dr. Billingsley stated. “It is an honor to co-chair this year’s conference and to help engage our colleagues in the vital discussion of what public affairs programs are doing to help strengthen democratic governance, equity, and opportunities for all individuals, and to train tomorrow’s leaders to have an enduring impact,” shared Dr. Van Slyke. NASPAA looks forward to working with the co-chairs to plan a meaningful and engaging 2021 conference in whatever format that might be.
