City Manager Selected by National Organization for Prestigious Honor

Joyce A. Wilson, City Manager for El PasoJoyce A. Wilson, City Manager for El Paso, was recently selected as a Fellow-Elect of the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). A 20-year veteran in the Public Administration field, Wilson's merits were recognized not only by the three-member team of current NAPA fellows that submitted her nomination, but through her selection to this prestigious organization. Among the reasons listed, Wilson's commitment to service and citizen empowerment, knowledge of the global political economy, and ability to perform as a dynamic and productive leader, manager and public servant were highlighted.

"It is a tremendous honor to be nominated by my peers as a fellow for the National Academy of Public Administration," said Wilson. "This has been a great year for me both personally and professionally. The NAPA nomination is a great professional achievement."

The National Academy of Public Administration is an independent, non-partisan organization chartered by Congress to assist federal, state and local governments in improving their effectiveness, efficiency and accountability. The Academy's most distinctive feature is its membership of 550 Fellows, which include current and former White House Cabinet officers, members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, state legislators, diplomats, business executives, local public managers, foundation executives and scholars.

Wilson, who has served the City of El Paso for just over two years, was recognized earlier this year with the Texas City Management Association's Administrator of the Year Award for the state of Texas, and with the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's Vision for Excellence award.
