New Statesmanship Award Honors Richardson
The APPA board of directors on June 23, approved creation of the Alan H. Richardson Statesmanship Award to recognize leadership in building consensus. The award was created to honor Richardson, who will retire at the end of 2007. In its resolution establishing the award, the board said the outgoing CEO has skillfully united APPA members around policy challenges and built common ground that transcends the geography, size and other characteristics of the association’s diverse membership.
APPA Chairman John Twitty announced creation of the award during the opening general session of the National Conference in San Antonio.
