California Forward, Hornets Policy & Politics Alumni, the Sacramento Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration and the League of California Cities invite you to a forum on entrepreneurialism in government.
Our expert panel will explore the catalytic, mission-driven, and customer satisfaction-oriented concepts that Ted Gaebler and other leaders have put into practice over the last two decades to improve government effectiveness.
Can performance-based metrics and benchmarks spur innovation in the public sector? Where are the current signs of optimism and change in local, state, and federal governments?
Lunch will be provided. Admission is free but registration is required. Optional donations at the event are welcome!
