10th Annual Public Performance Conference: Sustaining Performance in Times of Transition @ David J. Sargent Hall, Suffolk University
Sep 28 – Sep 29 all-day

Announcing the 10th Annual Public Performance Conference! Hosted by the National Center for Public Performance, the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers
University-Newark, and the Sawyer Business School Institute for Public Service at Suffolk University. The topic of this conference will be how organizations design, implement and
sustain performance innovations that can withstand times of transition and change.

Performance measurement is becoming more and more common across the public and nonprofit sectors. Organizations have proven to be very good at beginning performance and innovation initiatives, but less so when the longevity of these systems has been tested. We seek to better understand how performance measurement and management systems can withstand the pressures of political and institutional change and sustain themselves for the long term.

This conference will bring together the best minds in the professional and academic worlds to discuss performance measurement, program innovations, best practices, and emerging paradigms of public performance.

We will have panel discussions concerning:
• Sustaining Performance Systems During Transitions
• Public Health and Social Service Performance
• Open Data: Transparency & Performance
• Performance in Local Government
• Community Oriented Performance
