Its 800 Fellows—who include former cabinet officers, Members of Congress, governors, mayors, and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, and public administrators—meet annually.
The focus of its 2015 meeting was “A framework to strengthen governance”. A series of speakers and panel sessions explored key issues facing public administrators, including using data to improve government's performance and efficiency, governments' use of social media, and cybersecurity among other important topics.
