About IPAA

The Institute of Public Administration Australia (IPAA) is the largest professional body for public sector employees in South Australia, representing almost half the workforce in this State.

The public sector contributes enormously to the prosperity and high living standards of South Australia. IPAA exists to support the efforts of this often ‘silent army’ by fostering positivity and creativity, and offering opportunities for sharing and learning through our wide range of events, training workshops and networking opportunities.

Our core aim, with the help of our members, is to make the public sector in South Australia a great place to work and enjoy a varied career.

Established in 1927, we are non-political and not-for-profit, catering across the State, Federal and Local spheres of Government. Our long history means we have support from many long-term members and contributors and our independence means we can deliver un-biased information and learnings from across the jurisdictions.

We are linked Australia-wide to IPAA divisions in each State and Territory, allowing us to bring knowledge of new practices from around Australia, and often, from overseas.

Our members enjoy a wide range of career benefits, as well as the knowledge that they are contributing towards their sector.

Invest in your career.
Join us today and help make the public sector a great place to work into the future.
