This milestone will be celebrated on 18 February 2020 at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House. The Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) will deliver an address before will launch a book to mark the occasion — ‘A History of the Institute of Public Administration Australia, 1980–2020’ — with IPAA National President Dr Gordon de Brouwer PSM FIPAA.
