NCAC Board Member Sits on Panel entitled “Permission to Practice: Public Service Boundary Spanning”at NECoPA

One of our NCAC Board Members, Connie Berhane, recently sat on a panel at the Northeast Conference on Public Administration (NECoPA) annual conference, “Permission to Practice: Public Service Boundary Spanning.”  She presented on her contributions to a 2021 ebook project by the same name, which involved the collaborative production of original written content and video roleplays by nine practitioners and pracademics in Colorado, Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas, and the Washington, DC Metro Area.

Connie developed a script for the roleplay of an information interview she conducted the year before, turning it into a teaching tool.  She also was the subject of a recorded interview in which she explained how she used boundary spanning to uncover new avenues for career growth.  Her main takeaway for attendees was not to be afraid to reach out to a person or organization to seek information or request information interviews.  Check out the ebook and NECoPA session!
