Practice Specialty Spotlight: Public Sector

ASSE’s Public Sector Practice Specialty addresses topics such as emergency preparedness, disaster planning, campus safety, public health, and park and recreation safety. The group offers professionals working for governmental agencies and facilities at federal, state, county, municipal and institutional levels in urban, suburban and rural communities the opportunity to learn and share information to grow their skills and successfully perform their scope of responsibilities. The practice specialty also publishes a electronic publication, Perspectives; helps develop sessions for ASSE’s annual Professional Development Conference; and is responsible for producing technical content on the public sector industry for ASSE.



Each of ASSE’s practice specialties, branches and common interest groups now have an online portal where members can read up-to-date industry news, find resources and learn how to get involved. If you are not already a member of the Public Sector Practice Specialty or one of ASSE’s other practice specialties, branches or common interest groups, you can use access code SU16 until the end of the month to log into and check out any portal.
