Membership & Awards Luncheon (Ticket required)
This talk will discuss some of the challenges and opportunities that that confront leaders in large public institutions. Public institutions are frequently confronted with changes in budgets and in public expectations. This creates the need for change, but the regulatory and institutional structure of such institutions often makes such change difficult. Among the topics to be discussed: working with legislative oversight, simultaneously managing both inside and outside audiences, motivating change in a large bureaucracy, and dealing with the very large number of stakeholders that are invested in these institutions. Comments are based on my experiences of running a big Federal agency and running a big state University.
Members will also participate in the annual membership meeting. At this time, APPAM members will formally elect the leadership to the Policy Council and discuss Association business.
A separate ticket is required for lunch and can be purchased during the registration process.
