The 2014 National Teaching Public Administration Conference will be held in collaboration with the United Kingdom's Annual Public Administration Conference in Liverpool. The Public Administration Committee (PAC) is the UK’s leading learned society for developing education and research in public administration and represents the subject internationally. The PAC is very active in the promotion of public administration, public policy and the study of governance, both through scholarly activities and as the representative organization for those universities in which teaching and research in such subjects are undertaken. It does so through various activities, including an annual conference; research seminars; the publication of research work; and advising government, Parliament and other public bodies.

Conference Conveners: Associate Professor, Pamela T. Dunning - Troy University; Professor John Diamond, Edge Hill University; Dr. Mike Rowe, University of Liverpool.
