About ASPA Sacramento

The Sacramento Chapter (ASPA Sacramento) was founded in 1940. ASPA Sacramento's activities include the annual public service reception, educational programs where speakers and panels discuss timely public administration issues, civic service outreach events, publication of a newsletter, and an annual awards dinner. Since 1982, ASPA Sacramento has recognized outstanding local public administrators, professors and students through its awards program.
