Washington, D.C.—The National Academy of Public Administration announced the induction of thirty-two individuals as Fellows during its Annual Fall Meeting, November 13-15, 2013.
“I am very excited to welcome this new group of outstanding individuals to the Fellowship,” said Academy President and CEO Dan G. Blair. “Fellows are nationally recognized for their significant contributions to the field of public administration and today’s incoming class exemplifies this commitment to public administration. Elected by their peers, these inductees will drive the important work of the Academy in addressing emerging issues in government.”
Selection of new Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual’s contributions to the field of public administration and policy. A Fellows Nominating Committee, selected by the Academy’s Board Chair, makes its recommendations to the full Fellowship, which in turn votes on those individuals named to be a Fellow. The committee was chaired by Susan Gooden, Professor of Public Administration and Policy and Executive Director of the Grace E. Harris Leadership Institute at the Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University. “We had an exceptionally strong set of nominations for Academy Fellows this year,” commented Gooden. “The nominating committee had a difficult charge to identify those who should be chosen to go forward for election and carried it out with a high degree of professionalism and skill.”
