Faculty Member David Ammons Joins ASPA Center for Accountability and Performance

Faculty member David Ammons has been appointed to the board of directors of the Center for Accountability and Performance at the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). The Center was established in 1996 to address the need for performance-based, results-driven management at all levels of government. The Center aims to improve the practice of public service by helping public administration and nonprofit professionals acquire the knowledge, technical skills, and resources necessary to successfully manage for results.

Ammons' books on local government management include Municipal Benchmarks (M.E. Sharpe, 2012), Tools for Decision Making: A Practical Guide for Local Government (CQ Press, 2009), and Leading Performance Management in Local Government (ICMA, 2008). Prior to serving on the Center's board, he served on the National Performance Management Advisory Commission, ASPA's National Council, and the Executive Council of the Network of Schools of Public Policy, Affairs, and Administration (NASPAA). He was elected as a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration in 2006 and in 2014 was the recipient of the Joseph Wholey Distinguished Scholarship Award presented by ASPA's Center for Performance and Accountability for work in the field of public sector performance.
