|NEW MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES AND MENTORING PROGRAM
The SAPA Board will vote whether to expand membership categories during the March 6th Board meeting, which is open to all Fellows and will be held at 8 am at Rockefeller College, Milne 120 (the Levitt Room).
Specifically, the Board will vote whether to amend SAPA's by-laws to add an
Associate Fellow category and a
New Professional category. The Board has been discussing these changes for quite some time. We want SAPA to become a resource for all public administration professionals. This change also will help sustain SAPA into the future and allow us to broaden our program offerings.
To take effect, SAPA by-law changes must be approved by Fellows as well. If approved by SAPA's Board, we will circulate the proposed amendments to active (dues paid) Fellows for review and voting. An affirmative vote of two-thirds of those voting is required for adoption of the changes.
During the March 6th Board meeting, consideration will be given to the launch of a
, whereby younger public administrators and students will be able to network with SAPA's more experienced Fellows. This will be done in a social setting. More information about this will be forthcoming. If you are interested in participating, contact Paul Shatsoff at
