We are excited to meet you in Atlanta in a few weeks!
The Conference of Minority Public Administrators (COMPA) is hosting its 12th adjudicated competitive “L. Frances P. Liddell Student Policy Debate,” 10 am – 12:00 Friday, February 28, 2020 during COMPA’s 2020 Annual Conference at the Crown Plaza Atlanta Hotel located at 201 Aberdeen Parkway; Peachtree City, Georgia.
This policy debate will afford young professionals, undergraduate and graduate students in Public Administration, Public Policy, Public Affairs and related programs an opportunity to present and defend positions on current public policy issues. Participants will have the opportunity to enhance communications skills including the manner of delivery and persuasion. Specifically, this activity serves to assist in embracing those attributes and qualities desired of future public administrators–speaking competently and with confidence on public policy issues. All participants will receive a certificate of participation. The winning team will be awarded a trophy and will be recognized during COMPA’s Awards Ceremony.
“Being a part of the COMPA Debate team was a great experience for me. As a debate team member, I was able to practice my impromptu speaking, strengthen my critical thinking; work on my communication skills and it forced me to think on my feet. At the conference, I was able to network with a range of people from graduate students to actual practitioners in the field. Overall, I believe that attending the conference assisted me in my continuous effort to gain more professional development, network with other people in the field and learn more about innovative practices in the public administration field.” Erika Sherin, Former Graduate Student, North Carolina Central State University
