Description

The Bureau of Public Administration had its start at the University of Maine with the city manager program in the 1930’s. The Bureau was part of the progressive movement to professionalize municipal administration. The position of town manager became popular through this movement as a way to administer above the political fray. The Bureau hosted, delivered, and facilitated training for municipal and public employees on a range of subjects. In 1989, the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center was founded and took over many of the responsibilities of the Bureau. By 1991 training, seminars, workshops were phased out and the program replaced by the Maine Municipal Association.
