SPA  Directors Name. Committees

  The State Planning Agency Directors
Association-formed at the second an-
nual LEAA-SPA   meeting in Colorado
Springs-has  named an executive com-
mittee  and several additional com-
mittees.
  The purpose is to channel communi-
cation and action between the SPAs and
LEAA,  to resolve problems and to con-
duct business that does not adapt itself
to either plenary sessions or individual
communication between LEAA  and the
separate SPAs.
  All the committees named by the new
association represented all seven LEAA
regions. (A separate item in this issue
lists the seven LEAA regions, their di-
rectors, their headquarters cities, and
the states contained in those regions.)
