2013 Spring Conference
APPAM’s Spring Conference, Diversity, Equity & Public Policy, will take place in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 6, 2013. The discussion will center on what academic institutions are doing to encourage diversity in their schools and in the field. The Conference Committee and the Association hopes that at the end of the Spring Conference, there will be a clear plan, formulated by the various stakeholders taking part in the conference, to help promote and encourage diversity in the field of public policy, as well as what APPAM can do to implement this plan.
The conference will take place at the Marriott Wardman Hotel in Washington, DC. Registrants can make reservations by calling 1.800.228.9290, specifying the Wardman Park, and mentioning the APPAM meeting to receive the room block rate of $169/night.
2013 International Conference
The next conference is Collaboration Among Government, Market, and Society: Forging Partnerships and Encouraging Competition from May 26-27, 2013 in Shanghai, China. This conference is designed to attract a worldwide audience, including academics and professionals from universities, think tanks, government agencies, nonprofits, and the private sector.
Collaboration and competition among government, nonprofit, and for-profit organizations have been growing trends over the years and have fundamentally shaped the values, operations, responsibilities, and results of public management. By shifting to market means, competition is used to break (bureaucratic) monopoly and improve public performance. With varying results, collaborative efforts have been used in countries with different political, social, economic, and cultural backgrounds. While new opportunities are created, collaboration induces boundary blurring that poses challenges to public management regarding its missions, core technologies and competencies, the nature of its performance, and accountability.
2013 Fall Research Conference
The 2013 Fall Research Conference will be held November 7 - 9 in Washington, DC at the Washington Marriott Hotel, Westin Grand Hotel, and Ritz Carlton Hotel. This year's theme is Power of the Past - Force for the Future. Proposals are now being accepted. Read President-elect Angela Evans' blog on the changes to this year's conference.
In keeping with the Association’s strategic plan, the 2013 conference program will continue progress on two primary objectives: (1) to promote greater integration across disciplines, methods, topics, and perspectives, and (2) to increase the policy relevance of our work.
