About the IPAA National Conference

Held annually since 1958 — the conference also features the Garran Oration — one of IPAA’s richest and most public contributions to discussion and debate on public administration.

Each year one of the state/territory divisions of IPAA hosts the National Conference in partnership with IPAA National.

Who should attend

This is the premier event for anyone working in the public purpose sector. Over 2-3 days, you will hear from an impressive line-up of senior leaders and thought leaders from the public and private sector as well as leading academics on important issues facing the sector.

Individual members of IPAA Queensland receive discounted ticket rates.
