The mission of the SPIA Alumni Board of Directors is to serve students and graduates of SPIA through its support of the School’s programs and activities in order to cultivate and encourage a continuing affiliation between and among graduates and the School.

The Board hosts the annual Georgia Legislative Outlook event in Atlanta which raises money for an undergraduate study abroad scholarship and stipend for an MPA student to participate in an unpaid internship.  To learn more about this organization or to get involved, contact Board Chairman Jason O’Rouke at jorouke@gmail.com.
