North Texas Chapter

The North Texas Chapter's mission is to connect public administrator practitioners and academics in a space where knowledge-sharing, approaches to governance and equitable opportunities are advanced for the welfare of democracy.

As an organization, we invite public administration students, academics and professionals to our quarterly guest speaker events, varying in topics from diversity and inclusive hiring practices to city management.

Dating back more than 20 years, our chapter has recognized a distinguished public administrator in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex who embodies our organizational values of service, accountability, respect, transparency and integrity.
