2014 NAPA Fall Meeting Focuses on the Future of Public Administration
Management Concepts will be participating in the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA) 2014 Fall Meeting taking place November 13, 2014 in Crystal City, Va.
Management Concepts is an Academy patron-level sponsor and the event’s focus is on “Public Administration 2025 – How will Government Adapt?”
The event’s theme aligns with our view that the government in the next ten years will look drastically different than how it looks today. With technology, priorities, and the workforce changing considerably, the government must remain agile enough to seamlessly adapt to provide citizens with a high level of service and transparency.
The Academy’s esteemed speaker faculty will bring an informative and innovative look to where government is going and how it will adapt to a rapidly changing environment. Management Concepts president, Stephen L. Maier, will join the Academy leadership in providing opening remarks to kick off the day’s events. Speakers will include:
- The Honorable Katherine Archuleta, Director, Office of Personnel Management
- Reginald F. Wells, Deputy Commissioner for Human Resources and Chief Human Capital Officer, Office of Human Resources, Social Security Administration
- The Honorable Beth Cobert, Deputy Director for Management, Office of Management and Budget
- The Honorable Dan Tangherlini, Administrator, General Services Administration
- The Honorable Robert F. Hale, Former Under Secretary (Comptroller) and Chief Financial Officer, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense, U.S. Department of Defense
We all know that organizations are better positioned to meet their missions when they have the support and dedication of an engaged, motivated, creative, innovative, and collaborative workforce that finds ways to exceed the demands of their job and organization.
Transforming an organization to achieve this success requires proactive assessment and planning, consistent and holistic opportunities for workforce growth, and sustained support of people and programs. Change will be transformative, introducing new risks, but more importantly new opportunities and a chance for a restored public confidence in government.
