On Thursday 5 August 2021, IPAA ACT ran a Secretary Series event with David Fredericks PSM, Secretary of the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources. Secretary Fredericks spoke about the benefit for Australian public policy outcomes of strong professional relationships between the Australian Public Service and ministerial officers and their advisors, and the importance of facilitating movement between the APS and advisor roles in both minister and shadow ministerial offices. The event was hosted by Dr Steven Kennedy PSM, Secretary of The Treasury and IPAA ACT President, and was held at the National Portrait Gallery.
