COP President's Message

 Welcome to NFBPA!  



I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Council of Presidents (COP) of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators (NFBPA).  I am most honored to represent an esteemed group of leaders in an organization that I hold near and dear to my heart.  Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize the COP Vice President, Mr. Marshall Taggart, Jr. and the COP Secretary/Treasurer, Ms. Deborah Britton.

With your support I look forward to fulfilling the mission of the NFBPA President Aretha Ferrell-Benavides, Recruiting new members, Reactivating former members, and last but certainly not least, Rejuvenating chapters that could use a little support.  As we work together we will build on the legacy of our founding members.

Thanks again for this opportunity as our organization works toward celebrating 30 years of public service excellence in 2013.

Crystal T. Hendrick

President, Council of Presidents
