Countdown to NECoPA

Academics, practitioners, and students from across the Northeast are making their way to the 2013 NECoPA conference, taking place at the Trabant University Center at the University of Delaware.  The conference theme, “Public Administration in an Information Society: Opportunities, Threats, and Intriguing Possibilities,” recognizes the important role that information plays in our society – as well as the contemporary challenges and opportunities it presents.


Starting Friday, November 1 through Saturday, November 2, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from leading authorities in the field about the most challenging issues facing public administration. Sessions will run concurrent in the mornings and afternoons on a variety of engaging topics including:

  • Changing government in the information age.
  • Developing the economy during financial hardship.
  • Interfacing between law, ethics, and public management practices.
  • Leveraging information to affect real change.
  • Sharing services at the municipal, state, and federal levels.
  • Developing the workforce of the future.
  • Evaluating performance and building an evidence-based government.

Friday’s luncheon will feature a keynote address from The Honorable John Carney (D-DE). Congressman Carney is the state of Delaware’s lone representative in the United States House of Representatives. He was sworn in on January 3, 2013 for his second two-year term. Congressman Carney serves as a member of the Financial Services Committee, the Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises, and the Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade.

Mix and mingle on Friday evening at the Welcome Reception, hosted by the University of Delaware’s Research Centers. The reception will be held at the Deer Park Tavern in Newark from 6:00pm—8:00pm.

On-site registration is available for anyone interested in attending. For more information about NECoPA, including registration fees, schedule of events and lodging, visit the NECoPA website.
