The Council plays a vital role in IPAA WA’s Governance and Strategic Planning.

At a strategic level, this includes setting the strategies, goals, action plans, policies, and performance targets for IPAA WA, as well as monitoring the performance of these strategies and plans. The Council also allocates the resources including the budget, staff, systems, and tools to achieve IPAA WA’s strategic objectives.

In a governance capacity, Council ensure IPAA WA’s compliance with statutory, legal, and accounting requirements. We also assure adequate risk management and accountability systems are in place for IPAA WA, and at an internal level, our Council set the tone for organisational behaviour (administered through the Code of Conduct).
