About School of Public Affairs
Mission: The School of Public Affairs advances excellence in governance by creating, sharing, and applying knowledge of public administration.
In support of this mission, we are committed to enabling students to analyze public problems, communicate, collaborate, make decisions, and manage public institutions effectively, ethically, and democratically; teaching and providing continuing education at times and locations appropriate for working students and practitioners; identifying emerging public issues, applying research to public programs, disseminating information, and proposing solutions to public problems; assisting public, private, and nonprofit organizations; facilitating community discourse on public issues; contributing to public affairs scholarship; and fostering the next generation of public affairs scholars.
The new demands on public leadership in the context of global urban governance are unprecedented in complexity and scope. The ASU School of Public Affairs believes that the most influential contributions we can make are the development of multiple, useful, and realistic models of governance with accompanying processes for extended civic engagement and the training of a new generation of urban leaders capable of addressing the questions raised by the rapid growth of urban citistates. We consistently rank in the top twenty-five public administration schools nationally and offer the only program in the region accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), uniquely positioning us to respond to these opportunities.

Mission Statement: AMPO is the transportation advocate for metropolitan regions and is committed to enhancing MPOs’ abilities to improve metropolitan transportation systems.
AMPO is a nonprofit, membership organization established in 1994 to serve the needs and interests of “metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs)” nationwide. Federal highway and transit statutes require, as a condition for spending federal highway or transit funds in urbanized areas, the designation of MPOs, which have responsibility for planning, programming and coordination of federal highway and transit investments. AMPO offers its member MPOs technical assistance and training, conferences and workshops, frequent print and electronic communications, research, a forum for transportation policy development and coalition building, and a variety of other services. The nine-member AMPO Board of Directors is directly elected by the membership, including the President and Vice President. Local elected officials who are active members of their respective MPOs play a vital leadership role in the affairs of AMPO. Full-membership in AMPO is open to all MPOs and associate memberships are available to all interested parties.
Metropolitan areas are the nation’s economic engines. Most of America’s population live and work in these regions, which drive the nation’s economy and compete head-to-head with regional economies in other countries. Because the pricing of our goods and services in the international marketplace largely determines our ability to compete successfully, we must be able to transport these goods and services efficiently. The quality of metropolitan transportation infrastructure — highways, bridges, airports, transit systems, rail, and ports — is, therefore, a primary factor in American economic competitiveness. It is for this reason that the members of AMPO are particularly interested in current legislation and concepts under consideration by Congress, the Administration and key lawmakers.

Way back in 1970 Hodes set out to redefine help-wanted advertising with a fresh, creative, “big picture” approach to solving recruitment problems.
Today we’re a world leader in integrated talent solutions. We continue to promote growth and change in our marketplace, while advancing the state of our art. We remain dedicated to the three elements upon which we built our agency: service, creativity and respect. And our track record as innovators, both through creativity and technology, continues to grow.
Hodes truly believes that Talent Matters, and that starts with valuing our own people. And not just their skills meeting clients’ needs, but those special charateristics and talents that they bring to our workplace every day. Take a peek inside and meet some of the individuals that make Hodes so special.
Bernard Hodes Group knows that nothing adds more value to your organization than talent. We help our client partners find their very best talent every day by creating strong, resilient, and honest employer brands.
We approach your brand using the Hodes 360 Process: Assess > Strategize > Implement > Measure. This process ensures ROI by consistently measuring our efforts against expected results and allowing us to adapt our strategies to the constantly shifting landscape.
We begin assessing your employer brand as viewed through the Talent Talent Lifecycle. As talent progresses from Candidate to New Hire to valued Employee, their needs and perceptions change. Hodes then strategizes the best solutions possible to address the unique strengths — and weaknesses — of your employer brand and how it communicates with your customers. And with the Bernard Hodes Global Network you’re able to implement these solutions at the local, regional, and even global level, depending on your needs and the needs of your talent.
Finally, we hold ourselves accountable through continued measurement. As a true partnership, our success is only based on your success and we seek out every opportunity for improvement.
Why do we go to such great lengths for our client partners? Simple. Because Talent Matters.
After nearly 30 years of working with the challenges government officials face Gabe Gabrielsen co-founded Local Government Resources to assist Township, Village, City, County, Parish, Borough, School Board, Economic Development Authority, Special District and Public Commission local government officials, public employees, community leaders, civic activists and local businesses.
Gabe, a dynamic individual, enlisted in the United States Air Force at seventeen and learned to aim high. During his fantastic 20 plus year military career he earned a commission as a USAF Officer then went on to earn a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Oklahoma.
After retiring from the USAF, Gabe began a career in public service as a County Administrator. Gabe served two counties in two states. During his extraordinary time in local government he oversaw the recovery efforts of a FEMA disaster, helped privatize several non-essential government functions, managed the construction of several public facilities as well as the total restoration of a 150 year old historic Government Center. Most important, Gabe worked with local leaders and business owners in his county to launch several significant economic development initiatives in the townships, villages and cities he served.
Throughout his military career Gabe was fortunate to have worked with a variety of high ranking and senior government officials, the best and the brightest, on a variety of politically sensitive initiatives. Along the way he developed a keen understanding of effective responsible leadership and responsible government.

Whatever your organization’s budget level, we can help. We offer flexible management consulting and training services ranging from full service, on-site consultation to our new online Webinar series.
