Chad R. Miller, University of Southern Mississippi assistant professor of Economic Development, was voted chair-elect of the American Society for Public Administration's (ASPA) Transportation Policy & Administration section. Miller was elected at the recent national ASPA conference in New Orleans.
ASPA is the nation’s largest organization devoted to public administration. The Transportation section of the organization provides policy information to federal, state, and local policy makers, to support sound decision-making on transportation and other critical infrastructure.
According to Miller, “our goals for this section are to organize a transportation focus at national, regional, and chapter ASPA meetings in the coming year.”
Miller directs the University’s Economic Development Masters Program, one of the oldest and most respected such degree programs in the country. In Fall 2013, the Economic Development program will move to the Southern Miss College of Business.
