Thank you for placing your confidence in me to serve as your President. It is with humility that I accept this nomination, for I am beyond grateful and thankful for the opportunity to serve as the President of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA) – Tampa Bay Chapter for the next two years.
It is our desire to Rebuild, Reconnect and Rejuvenate our local chapter. My leadership team will include leaders from educational institutions, government, nonprofits and the public sector from various counties in the Tampa Bay region. We are eager to get to the process of Rebuilding and Reconnecting Our Future Leaders. We will lead to attain the mission to strengthen the position of Blacks within the field of public administration; to increase the number of Blacks appointed to executive positions in public service organizations; and, to groom and prepare younger, aspiring administrators for senior public management posts in the years ahead.
As President, my team and I will lead with integrity, courage and passion to serve our members and move the organization forward! Although the challenges are great, I believe the possibilities are greater! Therefore, the priority of our Executive Board will be to:
- Increase Awareness
- Increase Membership
- Increase Long-Term Partnerships
We will continue the efforts to provide sustainable growth for our chapter, educational and professional development opportunities and resources to each member.
The Executive Board is committed to honoring the accomplishments of the past leaders of this progressive organization and look forward to bridging the gap for our future leaders. We will build long-term relationships with the local colleges and universities by offering resources and opportunities for students and young professionals to connect, grow and learn through new initiatives created by our youth focus and emerging leaders committees. It is our duty to give hope to our youth and collectively we can create a bridge worth crossing!
Together, we will meet the needs of our members to impact local government and our community in a lasting way. Thank you for your support and I look forward to serving with each of you!
Committed to service,
Angel Williams, MPA
