National Case Competition is Moving On and Up
With the successful conclusion of the fourth National Public Administration Case Competition in Halifax, the time has come to review our successes to date, what we have learned and how we can broaden participation in this new way to showcase emerging public administration talents across the country. As well, the time has come to involve more people and organizations in the work of this event, which has become a singular event in the cycle of public administration schools. to that end, CAPPA - the Canadian Association of Programs in Public Administration - is leading a review. this is timely and much needed as the event has well outgrown the capacity of one person to carry.
