We are the National Capital Area Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration.

The American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) is committed to the advancement of excellence in public service. The Society seeks to achieve that by advancing the art, science and processes of public administration, the development and exchange of public administration literature and information, and advocacy on behalf of public service and high ethical standards in government.

With more than 10,000 members, ASPA is America’s largest association of public administration professionals.

Join us at PA Connections!

In response to feedback from its members, ASPA NCAC launched a new program to provide networking, mentoring, and professional development opportunities.

We need to hear from you! Whether you are interested in serving on the Steering Committee, would like to provide input on the topic, would like to identify yourself as part of the mentoring community, or have questions, please contact Billy Leiserson and Pamela Foster at aspancacmentoring@gmail.com.


ASPA’s National Capital Area Chapter is recruiting a member to serve as Financial Review Committee Chair.

The Financial Review Committee Chair and any additional committee members will:
* Review the Chapter’s annual financial report to ASPA’s national office, as prepared by the Treasurer,
* Inspect any of the Chapter’s financial records as the Financial Review Committee deems necessary, and
* Report to the Chapter’s Board of Directors on the accuracy of the annual financial report and the adequacy of the Chapter’s financial controls.

The committee’s review should be appropriate to the small size of the Chapter’s budget, rather than applying auditing standards appropriate to larger organizations.

If you are a National Capital Area Chapter member and interested in serving as Financial Review Committee Chair, then please contact our Chapter President, Judy England-Joseph, at jenglandjoseph@gmail.com.
