I know I am not the only that is happy that the semester is coming to an end. That means some of us will have an opportunity to have a break from school, and some may not. We will not be hosting an end of the semester social this year; however, if you would love to see on in Spring, please lets us know. Belong are some professional development and networking opportunities that can benefit many of us. The majority are them are funded by GAPSA.
We are always looking forward to hearing from you; please send Christina and/or Denisha an email or message in Campus Group, if you have some suggestions for GPASA. We plan on having two events next semester, Save the Date for Wednesday, February 12th, and Thursday, March 19th, more information to come.

The NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition
2020 Theme: Sustainable Cities
The NASPAA-Batten Student Simulation Competition is a day-long event that allows graduate students in public policy and related fields to test their skills on real-world data. Participatory simulations are developed for the competition by the Center for Leadership Simulation and Gaming at the University of Virginia’s Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. The simulations give participants a chance to employ their knowledge in a realistic situation, as well as an opportunity to hone skills in leadership, negotiation, and critical thinking.
Please contact Christina Stocks if you are interested in attending this event. She has also participated last year and can answer any questions you may have. We will pay for the hotel and roundtrip ticket via the train to DC.
