Subject: Jamie Boex Selected as a Fellow by the National Academy of Public Administration

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA – LPS Associates, LLC, today announced that its Managing Director, Jamie Boex, has been selected by the National Academy of Public Administration for inclusion in its 2020 Class of Academy Fellows, in recognition of his years of public administration research, expertise and service. Induction of the 45 new Fellows will occur during the annual Academy Fall Meeting, which will take place virtually November 5-10.

"It's an honor to be selected as a Fellow by the National Academy of Public Administration." said Dr. Boex. "The Academy's Congressional Charter assigns an important role to the organization in the area of federalism and intergovernmental relations, as its charter specifically includes mandates to advise on the relationship of federal, state, regional, and local governments in the United States and to increase public officials', citizens', and scholars' understanding of the requirements and opportunities for sound governance and how these can be effectively met."

Jamie Boex is a leading scholar-practitioner in the field of federalism and intergovernmental relations, having worked on the topic in the United States and in close to 25 countries around the world. Dr. Boex serves as a Senior Fellow at the Duke Center for International Development and manages Decentralization.Net, a global knowledge platform for decentralization and localization. In addition, Dr. Boex recently supported the Academy in establishing Significant Features of American Federalism, an online data book on different aspects of American federalism and intergovernmental relations.

"I am very pleased to welcome Jamie Boex to the Academy's 2020 class of Fellows," said Terry Gerton, President and CEO of the Academy. "Our distinguished Fellows are nationally recognized for their expertise and contributions to the field of public administration and Jamie Boex is no exception. During this especially turbulent time for government, we welcome his experience and perspective as we work collaboratively to find solutions to the Grand Challenges in Public Administration, advance social equity and build resilient communities."

Selection of the Academy's new Fellows follows a rigorous review of the individual's contributions to the field of public administration and policy. A Fellows Nominating Committee makes its recommendations to the full Fellowship, which then votes on those individuals to be elected. The 2020 class joins more than 940 Academy Fellows -- including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors and state legislators, as well as prominent scholars, business executives, and public administrators.
