The Fall Conference of the Association of Inspectors General takes place in Boston November 16-18, 2016. Further information about the conference is here: Inspectors General Conference 2016.
For both campus-based and online students, the MPA program will pay for registration which includes many meals. However, you are responsible for your travel and hotel expenses.
We have 20 rooms reserved at the conference rate (approximately $200) for students and we will assign two students to a room. Alternatively you can make your own arrangements.
Please complete the following survey if you plan to attend. We will allocate the student rooms to online MPA-IO students first, based on the time of reservation in the survey, so please respond soon. If we have more than 40 respondents wanting the shared rooms, we will attempt to secure some additional rooms. Please be aware that there are other conferences taking place in Boston at the same time so there may be a shortage of rooms as the date of the conference approaches.
This is a link to the student attendance survey which you should complete if you plan to attend, whether you are an online for campus-based student.
MPA-IO Online (OMPAIG) students are encouraged to attend, but no longer required to attend. The advantage of attendance is that you can met your faculty members and meet the other students, as well has begin the process of networking with professionals in the inspection and oversight field.
