Recent activities and announcements of the RIGO team.
The Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA) holds the day-long Deil S. Wright Symposium annually as part of the pre-conference programming of the APSA annual meeting. The symposium honors the career and contributions of Professor Deil S. Wright, who was a charter member of the Section and remained active until his passing in 2009.
At this year’s symposium the RIGO team organized a panel to introduce the database to the SIAM and ASPA community. The panel included a presentation by Dave Miller, followed by a Q&A session with representatives from four cross-boundary organizations.
Panelists from the Q&A session (from left to right):
Doug Hooker (Executive Director) – Atlanta Regional Commission, Michelle Lacewell (Interim Director) – Nashville MPO, Michael Skipper (Executive Director) – Greater Nashville Regional Council, Kristen Maser Michaels (Executive Director) – CONNECT Congress of Neighboring Communities (Pittsburgh)
