ASPA

Membership in American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) is highly recommended and attendance at local ASPA meetings is encouraged for the MPA students.  This is a professional organization that provides students with excellent publications, newsletters, career opportunities, and an opportunity to create networks with other public administrators.  Applications may be accessed at aspanet.org or from faculty members.  The Arkansas Chapter of ASPA meets monthly and provides regular opportunities for professional and social networking.
