The Georgia Chapter’s mission is to advance the science, processes, and art of public administration, and the equality of opportunity for all persons through Public Administration. Additionally, each year in March we decide who will hold the next conference. Hosts may volunteer from anywhere in the state. The conference is designed as an academic conference but we do cater to the presentations of our practitioners. Our conferences have historically been attended by faculty and students of our Georgia Master of Public Administration programs, but we highly encourage more practitioner-based presentations. Our keynote and business meeting speakers are usually practitioners.
