Good morning <<First Name>>

Welcome to IPAA's first newsletter for 2020.

It's been quite a start to the year between the disasterous fires over Christmas, the Canberra hail and the current fires to our south. It's left many of us with a feeling of unease, hoping for some better months ahead. Many of you are also impacted by the current departmental consolidation, the most sizeable change to the APS for many years.

We have a few good events over the coming months, including our flagship International Women's Day Breakfast, where we are pleased to welcome Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC, the Minister for Defence, to provide the keynote address. We're also looking forward to welcoming Rosemary Huxtable PSM for our first Secretary Series address for 2020.

Our IPAA ACT Conference is on Tuesday 31 March and we have recently opened ticket sales. Click here to view the conference website for the program and speaker line-up.

On a general note, we're currently recruiting with two roles to fill, see below if you or anyone you know might be interested!
