Call For Panel Proposals
ASPA's 2001 National Conference, March 10 – 13, 2001
Newark, New Jersey

The 2001 Conference Program Committee announces the call for proposals for panels for the conference to be held in Newark in March 2001. Paper/presentation and panel proposals will be considered on a space available basis.

The 2001 Conference theme: New Century – New Cities – New Challenges encourages ASPA members and conference attendees to consider the challenges and opportunities facing public administration in the first year of the Twenty-First Century. Newark, New Jersey is an example of the New City of the twenty-first century. In contrast to the discouragement of its past, Newark has become a vibrant city of the new century, with economic development, growth, progress, and exciting cultural activities. This conference gives ASPA the opportunity to celebrate the successes of Newark and other New Cities in the twentieth century and to address the New Challenges of the Twenty-First Century in the New City of Newark.

The Twenty-First Century will be International in scope, challenging the world to new levels of discovery, growth, cooperation, problem solving, and ultimately, peace. It will require governmental, nonprofit, and private organizations to work together to build and develop the new cities and the new state, regional, and national governments and international organizations that are needed to meet those challenges. The New Century will force the people and nations of the world to think globally and to work in interconnected ways. To reflect this challenge and to allow the maximum participation of ASPA members and interested people, this conference will also include a 2001 Virtual Conference that will make presentations and discussions available through the Internet in an interactive format that complements the Newark activities.

The New Century will require the best ideas and the most cooperation of both practitioners and academics to solve the new problems and meet the new challenges facing public administration around the world. The 2001 ASPA Conference will bring together both academics and practitioners on panels that address the new challenges and lead to problem-solving ideas. Some panels may be focused on practice and include practitioners addressing the issues, while others may focus on theory, teaching, or research, and include academics. A majority of panels should include both academics and practitioners bringing their expertise and ideas to the table to generate solutions to 21st Century problems.

Approved panels will be published online and, if possible, in PA Times to allow others to apply to join panels that have been accepted for the conference as space permits. In this way, individuals who wish to make presentations or present papers but are unable to form complete panels can find places for their presentations.

Panels should address the conference theme, reflecting the new issues and challenges facing public administration:

In a New Century;
In the New Cities, and the national, state, and local governments and nonprofit organizations that serve them; and
Within the Global and International context.
Forms for individual papers/presentations should be mailed, faxed, or emailed to ASPA for consideration on a space available basis
