The Midwest Public Affairs Conference (MPAC) is an educational consortium that promotes research, collaboration and socialization between academics, graduate students, policymakers, and practitioners. It is an ASPA-affiliated event which serves the Midwest in a similar manner as other regional organizations, such as the Northeast Conference on Public Administration (NECoPA) and the Southeastern Conference of Public Administration (SECoPA). This year’s conference will be held at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee on July 9-11, 2014. The conference’s primary service region encompasses portions of ASPA Districts 2-4, and covers 9 states, 56 NASPAA-member programs, 18 doctoral degree-granting institutions, and 16 ASPA chapters. Additionally, the Institute of Government at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock hosts our affiliated publication, the Journal of Public and Nonprofit Affairs.

The links on this website contain details of the conference, and includes specifics of our theme, leadership, venue, hotel, keynote speaker and journal. Please check out the Call for Proposals. If you are interested in assisting the organization, and please contact the President, Stephen Kleinschmit, Ph.D. (Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne). We hope to see you in Milwaukee!
