APPAM Mission

APPAM is dedicated to improving public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis and education.

Conferences & Events


APPAM formally was created at a May 1979 conference at Duke University by representatives of 15 policy schools and research institutes. Within a few years, APPAM evolved into a unique association of both individual and institutional members with an elected leadership and Policy Council (the Association's board of directors). The first APPAM Fall Research Conference occurred in 1979 in Chicago.
