DEDICATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF BLACK PUBLIC LEADERS IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN COLORADO
The NFBPA is dedicated to providing the highest level of public service while advancing Black leadership in the community and the nation. NFBPA is a national organization representing 2,500 members and over 350 jurisdictions throughout the country. We are rapidly emerging as THE NATION’S PREMIERE ASSOCIATION OF BLACK PUBLIC LEADERSHIP with a rapidly growing reputation for proudly STRENGTHENING THE CAPACITY OF FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT in a range of multidisciplinary roles. Our organization is made up of cities, state, county, and federal managers as well as professionals, educators, business people, students of public administration and allied disciplines.
The Rocky Mountain Chapter has been active since 2018 and holds regular meetings the third Thursday of the month between September and May. Rocky Mountain Chapter meetings feature guest speakers and lively discussions related to professional and career development as well as community education and civic outreach.
The mission of the NFBPA is embodied in the organization’s commitment to strengthen the position of Blacks within the field of public administration by increasing the number of Blacks appointed to executive positions in public service organizations; and to groom and prepare younger aspiring administrators for senior public management posts in the years ahead.
The NFBPA mission is realized through the pursuit of the following important goals:
To serve as a magnet organization for linking, public, private and academic institutions into an effective network to support interdisciplinary communications, management innovation and professional development among Blacks choosing public service careers.
- To provide intensive and rigorous training in critical management areas in response to the specialized needs of Black public sector professionals.
- To identify and groom younger, emerging Black administrators and provide relevant exposure to the challenges and rewards of public service careers.
- To promote, strengthen and expand the roles of Blacks in all aspects of public administration.
