Governing for a Resilient Future
“Governing for a Resilient Future” is the theme for SECoPA 2023. Governments and non-profit organizations in the southeast region and around the globe are adopting new strategies and management approaches to address pressing public policy and management challenges. Public administration research and scholarship can illuminate paths to improve the quality of governance, the equity of program implementation and service delivery, and the long-term social and ecological health of communities. The conference invites research presentations on a wide range of topics within the field of public administration and policy, and we urge potential participants to consider how their work contributes to a resilient future.
This year’s Conference Chair looks forward to seeing you in Atlanta in September!
Since 1969, the Southeastern Conference for Public Administration (SECoPA) has been the gathering place of ideas for public service practitioners, researchers, and students in our ten- state region. The conference offers attendees the opportunity to engage in scholarly discourse, discover the latest innovations in the field, share ideas from practitioners in the field, and network with other public service administrators across the region.
SECoPA is an affiliation group of ASPA – American Society for Public Administration.
