The Evergreen Chapter of ASPA and the Hyogo Administrative Policy Studies Association (HAPSA) have worked in collaboration over the past 12 years. To honor this relationship and pay tribute to the 52-year history of Washington and the Hyogo Prefecture as sister-states, Evergreen board members Mary Van Verst and David Broom traveled to Kobe, Japan in August 2015 as part of a friendship delegation.


On Sept. 2, Van Verst and Broom met with members of HAPSA at the Disaster Reduction Institute in Kobe. The meeting included a warm welcome, several presentations on the work/activities of both organizations and a discussion about a joint panel session on disaster preparedness and recovery at the 2016 ASPA conference.

Van Verst and Broom also met with Governor Toshido Ido, thanking him for his support of the ASPA and HAPSA relationship. During the meeting, Governor Ido pledged to send a delegation from Hyogo to the ASPA conference in Seattle.
