A Message From Our President 


Welcome to the Conference of Minority Public Administrators homepage!  I hope you find our website useful and I encourage you to check it frequently as we will go all-out to provide you with current news, information and updates on events in the COMPA community.

  The Conference of Minority Public Administrators (COMPA), Hampton Roads Chapter, is an organization that was founded in June of 1979 to address the unique concerns and challenges of Minority Public Administrators in the public and private sector.  Our members are highly skilled, dedicated and extremely knowledgeable in their respected fields.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the President of the Conference of Minority Public Administrators for the 2016-2018 term.  My theme for this year will be Hampton Road COMPA (New Vision – New Hope – New Future)“   in 2020!

COMPA family, what I’d like to encourage us to do in these times of such difficulty for our organization is to be open-eyed about the choices before us as members. Don’t simply stumble along letting OUR organization fall by the wayside. Choose the humble purpose of dedication over pragmatism and personal gain. Choose to serve COMPA as a leader rather than to be served. Help grow the next generation of servant leaders behind you. Build a great and safe place for people to work and find their purpose and calling. Leave your legacy in the lives of others and COMPA. It is in such a life that you will meet a true servant leader down the road one day and that leader will be you: grown much larger in the ways that matter--perhaps forever.

So I close with:  COMPA needs strong leaders and members willing to make sacrifices:  give of your time and talents to strengthen the organization.  COMPA needs strong supporters to take the helm and carry out the vision of the organization.  Someone, unafraid to be the voice of the organization.  Someone who understands the value this organization brings to the workplace and will staunchly advocate for it.
