ASPA Evergreen Chapter Fosters International Public Administration

David Broom, Governor Toshizo Ido, and Mary Van Verst, representing ASPA’s Evergreen Chapter to welcome the Hyogo Legislative Assembly

For 15 years, the ASPA Evergreen Chapter has had an international agreement with the Hyogo Administrative Policy Studies Association (HAPSA). The Chapter’s sustained and beneficial relationship with their Japanese partner was the cause for celebration during the summer in 2018.

Last July, Evergreen Chapter leadership welcomed a delegation of the Hyogo Legislative Assembly at the Washington State Emergency Operations Center, where they received a presentation on Washington State’s disaster preparedness protocols from Robert Ezelle, director of the emergency management division. A rich lunch discussion followed with Chapter leadership engaging the citizens delegation from Hyogo, the majority of whom work in social services for older adults.

During a formal signing ceremony that afternoon at the Washington State Capitol, the Evergreen Chapter and HAPSA highlighted the 15th anniversary of their relationship. During an evening reception in the governor’s mansion, the Chapter presented a letter to Governor Toshizo Ido, addressed to HAPSA’s leadership, which the governor brought back to Kobe.
