Introduction of New Executive Committee Chair
We invite all members of SIAM to join us in the ongoing and important discussion about our section’s mission and future work. The Wright Symposium has become a hallmark event for the presentation of research on federalism and intergovernmental relations. This year, we invite members to join us for a panel discussion regarding the recent membership survey and work of the mission implementation committee, which will be held during the Wright Sympoisum, March 18 at 11:00 AM. This panel will provide members an opportunity to hear about the deliberative work of the Mission Implementation Committee, and hear an early preview of their recommendations before the business meeting. Then, please be sure to attend the section business meeting, scheduled for Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM. The SIAM events in Seattle provide us with an opportunity to unite behind our shared interests in federalism, intergovernmental relations, and collaborative management.
