Mission

The Conference of Minority Public Administrators (COMPA) is one of America’s leading national organizations committed to excellence in public service and public administration in city, county, state and federal government.

COMPA was established in 1977 as a broad-based minority section of the American Society for Public Administration (ASPA). The Hampton Roads Virginia Section of COMPA was organized in June 1979. Our goal is to create a professional leadership coalition which is designed to appeal to the needs of managers and other professionals in the public and private sector. Our members are highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable in their respected fields.

COMPA is governed by a national chairperson elected at-large from the national membership and an Executive Committee comprised of nine regional representatives, three at-large representatives, the chair-elect, immediate past-chair, and officers appointed by the chair.

On the local level, COMPA is governed by a president elected at-large from the general membership and an Executive Committee comprised of a president-elect, a corresponding secretary, a recording secretary, a treasurer, five members-at-large and all past presidents.


The purpose of this organization is to:

  • Uphold the principles of the National Conference of Minority Public Administrators and the American Society for Public Administration;
  • Provide a forum to promote the continual skills refinement and upgrading to minority administrators;
  • Promote the recruitment of minorities for leadership positions in public administration at all levels of government;
  • Provide leadership in the elimination of discriminatory practices in the public sector; and
  • Improve the quality of life of citizens and underserved populations through training and exemplary public service.
