The Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA), is the only professional association in Australia that provides a focal point for all three sectors of government – Commonwealth, State and Local.
The first division of IPAA was established in 1928 as a branch of the British Royal Institute of Public Administration. IPAA National was established in 1979, formalising the cooperation that had existed amongst the different divisions into the new national body.
The Institute is managed at a national level by the IPAA National Council. There are eight Divisional Representatives, one from each State and Territory and a seven Member Executives, who make up the 15 members of IPAA National Council.
