Bies Elected to ARNOVA Committee

May 05, 2009

At the recent annual meeting of the Association of Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action, (ARNOVA) Angela Bies, assistant professor in the Bush School of Government and Public Service, was elected to the Executive Committee of the Association’s Theory Section.  ARNOVA is the primary research association devoted to the emerging field of nonprofit and philanthropic studies, bringing together both theoretical and applied interests, helping scholars gain insight into the day-to-day concerns of third-sector organizations, while providing nonprofit professionals with research they can use to improve the quality of life for citizens and communities. 

The Theory Section explores the broad and fundamental questions related to the nature and identity of the field of nonprofit studies. It examines, discusses, and debates the epistemological, philosophical, and political dimensions and assumptions of the field.

Bies’s research focuses on accountability, capacity, advocacy, and performance in the nonprofit sector. Her work appears in such places as Public Administration Review, Journal of Public Affairs Education, and New Directions in Philanthropy

Prior to her scholarly work, Bies was executive director of the Charities Review Council, a statewide nonprofit accountability organization in Minnesota, director of the Minnesota Women’s Center, a regional director for the American Field Service.  She is a returned Peace Corps Volunteer-Kenya. 

Bies has also held leadership positions in ARNOVA’s Teaching Section, served on the executive committee of the Academy of Management’s Public and Nonprofit Division, and currently serves currently as the Division’s executive committee liaison to the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management.
