Recently a group of individuals expressed interest in forming an Alaska Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration (usually reffered to as ASPA). We hope to have an ad hoc committee formed shortly to work toward making this a reality. In the meantime we need to continue to access the interest for the establishment of the chapter as well as to recruit sufficient membership. The mimimum number required to form a chapter is 25. Currently we have approximately 10 folks who have expressed interest in joining, however very little outreach has been done. If you are interested in ASPA membership or would like more information regarding the formation of an Alaska Chapter please leave a reply and we would be happy to contact you. Dates for an organizational meeting will be announced shortly.
