MANAGEMENT UPDATE.

Congratulations to New NAPA Fellows



We’ve been fellows in the National Academy of Public Administration since 2014 and have become intimately familiar with the good work done by NAPA, which was founded in 1967 to assist government leaders in building more effective, efficient, accountable, and transparent organizations.


Last week, NAPA announced its 2023 class of new fellows – the largest group to date, according to Terry Gerton, President and CEO of the Academy. They’ll be formally inducted during the annual NAPA fall meeting in early November. Meanwhile, our congratulations to the soon-to-be inducted. Here’s the list:
