IPAA Victoria

Fellowship Benefits

Fellowship mutual benefits package

IPAA Victoria Fellowship represents one of the highest honours bestowed upon members by the institute. Once admitted, Fellows join a prestigious list of Victorian leaders who work in, or with, the public sector. Fellowship allows the institute to formally celebrate excellence, recognise outstanding leadership and extend the institute’s network of leaders. Fellows are active within the institute, attending events, participating in seminars and helping to shape and champion the work of IPAA Victoria.

Integral to IPAA Victoria Fellowship is a commitment to not just contributing to public service excellence through particular roles, but to consistently giving back to the sector more broadly, including through IPAA Victoria.
