Secretary Series

IPAA ACT occupies a privileged position working with a number of key leaders across the public sector. The Secretary Series was established to provide a platform for Secretaries and select agency heads to reflect on their portfolio, identify challenges they face and discuss and debate issues of relevance to the public sector.

In August 2015, IPAA launched it's first Secretary Series with Kathryn Campbell CSC, the former Secretary of the Department of Human Services, who addressed a room of 200 attendees on Service Delivery Reform. Since then IPAA ACT has presented over 13 Secretary Series events. Find out more about the Secretary Series and other IPAA ACT events on our past-event resources page.

IPAA Speeches Books

Due to an impressive array of addresses delivered as part of the Secretary Series and the annual events program, IPAA publishes an annual Speeches Book. Access the most recent books here.
