Created in 1979, the Section on Personnel Administration and Labor

(ASPA) promotes the importance of human resource management and labor
relations in public service organizations. It emphasizes:
public human resource management as a profession;
civil service reform;
human resource planning, management, and evaluation;
job evaluation and compensation;
labor-management relations;
constitutional rights of employees; and
diversity and affirmative action.
All section members receive two free publications: the Review of Public Per-
sonnel Administration and a newsletter, Periscope.
