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.

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.

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.
