Why partner with IPAA ACT?

As a partner of IPAA ACT, you demonstrate your support and commitment to the public sector and excellence in public administration.

Becoming a partner is a unique opportunity to connect with and support the public sector, showcase thought leadership and enhance our offering to members.

Partner with IPAA ACT to:

  • Align your organisation with the peak professional body for people working in the public sector
  • Gain exposure to key networks through our publications, events and forums
  • Enhance the strategic relationship by developing unique and customised benefits that showcase your organisation.

Our partnership program moves beyond the traditional ‘sponsorship’ arrangement to build a true partnership between IPAA and your organisation. Our partnerships are founded on an underlying philosophy of mutual gain and common values. Each partnership is developed in full and open consultation to ensure maximum benefit for all parties, including our members.  

IPAA ACT has introduced a multi-tiered model which allows partners to choose a tier of partnership that suits their needs and aspirations. Tier 1 Partnership is by invitation only.

Eligibility to partner with IPAA ACT

Partnership with IPAA ACT is based on trust, collaboration and mutual benefit. Our partnerships are long-term relationships, and our expectation is that a partnership will continue rather than being renegotiated each year.

A partnership approach will only be considered from existing IPAA ACT members, and from those who have demonstrated commitment to the public sector over a sustained period. We want to work with partners whose values, goals and objectives align with ours. The decision to enter into a partnership arrangement is at the discretion of IPAA.
