Curated by members for members

As an independent non-for-profit association of professionals, IPAA SA aims to provide a platform for our members to debate issues critical to the future of the public service as a profession. IPAA SA’s 2018 Event Program, Future of the Profession, is a season of events curated specifically for IPAA SA members by IPAA members.

Over the course of the year, IPAA SA will present a series of events featuring national and international leaders. Each event will cover an essential topic, such as innovation, technology, design and place making, humanism and connection, and reconciliation and cultural competency. These up-close, interactive discussions are designed to challenge, provoke, and galvanise our members.
