The National Academy of Public Administration has selected Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Navarro as a member of the 2021 Class of Academy Fellows.
According to a County press release:
Selection for this prestigious fellowship is based on contributions to the field of public administration and policy. Councilmember Navarro joins more than 950 Academy Fellows including former cabinet officers, members of Congress, governors, mayors, and state legislators as well as prominent education, business, and nonprofit leaders who have participated in this program. The National Academy of Public Administration was chartered by Congress to provide non-partisan expert advice to assist government leaders in building more effective, efficient, accountable, and transparent organizations. The organization assists government leaders in solving their most critical management challenges.
“It is a distinct honor to have been named one of 39 incredible members of the National Academy of Public Administration Class of 2021 Academy Fellows after a rigorous and comprehensive nomination process that drew on my breadth and depth of experience in public service and volunteerism on behalf of residents in Montgomery County, the Washington region, and the state of Maryland. As an elected official, it has always been my goal to demonstrate good governance and build a foundation for future generations to see success,” said Councilmember Navarro. “The fiscal uncertainty seen by every jurisdiction last year underscores the importance of our work here in Montgomery County. I pledge to use my membership to continue the good work we have been doing locally to make important contributions to the improvement of public service at the state and national level.”
