The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA)’s 76th Annual Conference expanded plenary sessions and featured prominent leaders, exploring the theme from both U.S. and international perspectives. The conference honored excellence in public service through the National Public Service Awards. A series of critical issue roundtable dialogues tackled some of field’s most important challenges, from the key issues that state and local governments will face over the next decade to the nexus of public management, the public sector, and the 2016 election.
