CAPAM 2018 Biennial Conference in Georgetown, Guyana, 22-24 October, 2018

Georgetown, Guyana, 18 October 2018

The Commonwealth Association for Public Administration and Management (CAPAM) is holding its 12th biennial conference in Georgetown, Guyana, 22-24 October 2018, focusing on the theme Transforming the Public Sector for Climate Governance. This event is not intended as a platform for gloom-and-doom scenarios, but rather an opportunity for experts and practitioners to set out arguments for a prosperous future that includes the public service as being responsible custodians for the environment. The conference will provide attendees with background information that underscores the economic and environmental challenges at their doorsteps while pointing out the risks with which the public service should be preoccupied in achieving results and being accountable.

Designed for an international audience of senior public sector managers and administrators, the three-day event offers insightful dialogue, theoretical and practical knowledge exchange and networking opportunities. Attendees from over 23 countries will experience a rich programme including 36 esteemed speakers and moderators who will thoroughly explore the conference theme. To enrich and complement the experience, the host government of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana is organising a unique and special programme of learning journeys for delegates. As always, the conference programme will culminate with the CAPAM International Innovations Awards presentations to recognise excellence in public service innovation.

CAPAM Chief Executive Officer, Ms Gay Hamilton describes the organisation’s biennial conference as, “an incredible opportunity for senior-level public service professionals and subject matter experts from around the globe to share best practices and establish networks to address common challenges.” She continues, “it truly is inspirational to watch delegates and speakers enthusiastically engage in topics about which they are so obviously passionate.”
