Public Management Research Association Conference Minneapolis photoPMRA is a nonprofit, academic membership association growing out of the bi-annual series of Public Management Research Conferences. PMRA furthers research on public organizations and their management. PMRA takes a special responsibility to further relations among researchers working in the public policy, public management, nonprofit and governance disciplines in the United States and abroad. PMRA emphasizes the linkages between the study of public institutions and their management and the study of public policy. PMRA defines public institutions broadly to include governmental jurisdictions; nonprofit and private organizations contracting with governments; and nonprofit, corporate, and other institutions engaging in projects or activities with distinct public purposes or implications. Public Management Research Association Conference Minneapolis skylinePMRA supports the development of empirical and normative inquiry, theory building, and systematic testing of theory consistent with the canons of social science, using the full range of quantitative and qualitative methodologies.
