IPAA Victoria is Victoria’s peak public purpose sector professional association.
As a trusted provider and partner, IPAA Victoria connects, empowers and celebrates Victoria’s public purpose sector. We are a voice of sector, uniting over 90 future-focused organisations and a diverse community of senior leaders, experts and professionals.

The Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA) was established on 1 January 1980 as an independent national organisation and is governed by a National Council under the leadership of the current National President. Each Australian jurisdiction has an IPAA organisation that works with National IPAA, hence in 1980 we became known as IPAA Victoria.
In an evolving world, we at IPAA Victoria challenge ourselves on the best role we can play to advance the public purpose profession and the spirit of service to inspire outstanding public purpose leadership.
As part of our Strategic Refresh 2020–26, we have clearly defined strategic directions and priorities, and a wide range of professional offerings to support our members.
