Cities, counties, departments, boards, commissions, and institutions of higher education perform critical functions in the design and delivery of public services. PARCA is a proud partner with public agencies to formulate research questions, identify policy innovations, and access and interpret crucial data. These agencies are also important audiences for PARCA’s work.
In recent years, public agency members paid a fee based on perceived value. Beginning in 2017, PARCA is providing a formalized fee structure and more transparent member benefits.
PARCA offers three levels of membership and benefits to public agencies.
