Tampa, FL—The 2011 Florida ASPA Conference was held in Tampa at the University of South Florida on May 13th, 2011. The conference was hosted by the University of South Florida Master of Public Administration Program.
Created in 2005 by chapter members Claire Mostel and Steven Bobes to provide professional development opportunities for public administrators, academics and students in the state of Florida, the Florida ASPA Conference is a one one-day event that explores challenges and best practice solutions in achieving critical mission goals at all levels of government.
The theme of this year’s conference was Improving Government Accountability: Balancing Costs and Benefits. Co-conference planner Warren Master, President & Editor-at-Large of the Public Manager, put together an engaging program that encouraged lively discussions on topics including Governmental Challenges & Opportunities in Florida Today, Managing for Performance Accountability, Accountability & Citizen Engagement, Forum: Building a Learning & Leadership Agenda for Today’s Professional Public Management Community.
The conference provided students and professional administrators as well as ASPA President-elect Tom Liou, ASPA Executive Director Toni Samuel and chapter members Ines Beecher and Bill Solomon the opportunity to discuss innovative approaches to improve performance, manage cost and engage both citizens and government employees through new, open government tools and techniques.
