Who are we?

The American Society for Public Administration is the professional home for more than 9,000 PA practitioners, academics and students with its South Florida Chapter consisting of 171+ members strong and growing. The Chapter embraces the society's original concept in finding ways of assisting its members to work better in their profession under the auspices of the national founder. The South Florida Chapter was chartered in 1959 and has been going strong since.

Throughout this website you will find a curated collection of videos from across the country and across time. These speak to what it means to be a Public Administrator and why it is important to be connected to your American Society for Public Administration and local chapters. Lessons of the past ring true today, where there is government, there are Public Administrators. Achieving excellence in the service we provide as professionals is our daily goal, for the good of our communities.
