As COVID-19 disrupts every area of our lives, we've developed a resource platform to provide relevant articles from Academy Fellows, resources from all levels of government, and on-the-ground perspectives from communities.
The Academy formed a series of Working Groups of its Fellows to address Grand Challenges in Public Administration. These Groups were charged with producing one or more papers to advise the Administration in 2021 (whether reelected or newly elected) on the key near-time actions that should be taken to begin addressing Grand Challenges.

As Election Day approaches, the U.S. Postal Service is under increasing pressure. Compounding the agency’s woes of declining mail volume, high expenses, and mounting debt and liabilities, now American election results may hinge on its ability to deliver a huge surge of mail-in ballots during a global health pandemic. The election outcomes will determine not only our new political leaders, but also impact the policy path that the Postal Service will follow in the years to come.
This year's virtual Fall Meeting will focus on the role of public administrators in building resilient communities. 2020 has been a uniquely challenging year--we have a presidential election, a pandemic, and social and racial unrest. How do we continue to build resiliency in our communities, in our networks, and in our nation? This virtual meeting will address those questions through a series of live sessions including plenary sessions, Standing Panel breakout sessions, and award sessions. The meeting will also include a curated section of on-demand sessions.
