Event outline

IPAA WA’s dedicated Young Professional Advisory Committee (YPAC) presents a must-attend full day conference. Once again it will provide young professionals in the public sector with a forum to explore and discuss the critical issues affecting their career prospects with leaders and peers. The conference features an exciting program developed for young professionals by young professionals, and will keep you inspired the whole day through thought provoking and interactive sessions.

The keynote speaker for this years' conference is the Department of Finance Director General, Jodi Cant.
