NECoPA Conference 2012: Boston, MA

I am “Shipping up to Boston” for the 2012 NECoPA conference. It is a two day conference and I will be presenting on Friday afternoon. The panel I am on looks to be an interesting one:

There are also other fabulous panels that I am looking forward to:

Fiscal Stress and Crisis in Local Governments
Civil Society and Government in a Technological Society
Challenges of Human Resource Management and Training
Challenges of Contracting-Out Government Services

There are more panels that I want to see, but due to the nature of concurrent sessions, these are the ones I have chosen for professional and personal interest.

Can’t wait for tomorrow!
