IPAA NSW provides members with many important opportunities to meet and network with colleagues in the public sector, business community and academia. All of our events enable members to network with other public sector professionals.

IPAA NSW also conducts the Practitioners’ Network, comprising Special Interest Groups (SIGs)  and the Young Professionals Network. These groups host meetings and events throughout the year on specific areas of interest – and are always pleased to welcome new members.

Special Interest Groups and Networks

Women's Leadership Network

The Women’s Leadership Network aims to increase representation and support women in senior public sector leadership roles. The Committee meets each month and is supported by a Reference Group of  IPAA members.

People, Performance and Culture
The People, Performance and Culture SIG is concerned with developing organisational capacity within the public sector. It looks at human resources, professional development and cultural change.

Shared Services
The Shared Services SIG is concerned with the provision of finance, procurement, human resources, facilities management and other shared services. The group will share experiences and look at best practice across Australia and overseas.  Several events have already been held or are in the planning stage.

Social Media
The Social Media SIG is interested in citizen engagement through web 2.0 technologies.  It will explore Facebook, Blogs, Wikis and other technologies that Government can use to improve community engagement. Several events have already been held or are in the planning stage.

The Sustainability SIG is concerned with the provision of ecologically sustainable solutions to solve problems in each of the Triple Bottom Line areas - economic, environmental, and social/cultural.

Young Professionals Network
The Young Professionals Network is a group of members who work together to identify areas that will support the professional and personal development of tomorrow’s public sector leaders. It arranges events of special interest to those members who are 34 years of age and under.
