This year, IPAA Victoria welcomes nominations from all levels of government, public service agencies and authorities, public entities, community and private sectors where they focus primarily on delivering public value.

“Victorian Fellows are recognised for their significant and continued contribution to public administration and exemplary service to the Victorian community, while also being a committed supporter of IPAA Victoria and its members,” says Nina Cullen, IPAA Victoria CEO.

 “Victorian Fellows hold a special place in our organisation, with our many Victorian Fellows demonstrating an ongoing commitment to furthering the careers of emerging leaders, to providing advice and thought leadership on sector trends, or through attending events, network groups and helping to shape and champion public purpose work,” adds Nina Cullen.

To nominate a new Fellow, nominations have to be made, endorsed and submitted by two financial IPAA Victorian Fellows. Nominees must be a financial Personal Member of IPAA Victoria. Individuals cannot nominate themselves.

View the Nominations page or download a copy of the Fellowship Policy criteria for further guidance on who is eligible to nominate.

Nominations close Wednesday 5 October 2022 at 11:59pm (AEST).

The prestigious awards are now in its 22nd year and will be celebrated at an end of year IPAA Victoria event.
