ASPA SOUTH FLORIDA CHAPTER
The Society is the professional home for more than 9,000 PA practitioners, academics and students with its South Florida Chapter consisting of 245 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.
ASPA was established 70 years ago to professionalize the public service, to keep members on the cutting edge of good government, and to help answer the enduring question of how to make a government work better. Over the years the Society has played a major role in achieving these ends.
The Society is a non-for profit internationally recognized Society committed to excellence in public service. ASPA provides its membership with education, research, technical assistance and networking opportunities between academics and practitioners.
