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. Information on previous Secretary Series addresses is provided below.

IPAA Books

Due to an impressive array of addressess delivered as part of the Secretary Series and the IPAA ACT Conference, IPAA has published two books titled Twelve Speeches 2016 and IPAA Speeches 2017 which capture key speeches over recent years. To find out more information about the book or grab a copy click here.
