A PLAN FOR RECONNECTING AND REBUILDING
The IPAA Tasmania Strategic Plan 2023-24 is firmly focused on reconnecting and rebuilding; reconnecting with our members who haven’t heard from us regularly in a while and rebuilding sustainable pathways to providing interesting events, networking opportunities and content, focused on the public sector. Our extended hiatus in recent years is largely due to lasting COVID-19 impacts and associated challenges of hosting events, along with changes to our operational structure, resulting in IPAA Tasmania currently being run on a largely voluntary basis through a working Council. We are eager to reinvigorate our engagement with members and revitalise our programs and offerings.
A critical and unapologetic element of our strategic approach this year is leveraging – recognising opportunity when it arises and playing to our strengths. Despite being a small outfit in a small jurisdiction, we are lucky to be part of a well-connected and supportive public sector eco-system in Tasmania. Not only that, but we are also part of a thriving and collaborative network of IPAA Divisions across Australia, providing insight and guidance for our regeneration. We recognise the importance of being able to ‘lean in’ to leverage these partnerships to regrow.
We are excited about re-engaging with our members and delivering greater value and connection for them going forward. We are committed to delivering our previously popular annual flagship events, as well as activating new ways for our members to connect with ideas and inspiration – through online podcasts with fearless leaders, future movers and shakers, and people doing extraordinary things in their ordinary vocations. We are also keen to leverage our national networks to bring intellectual content from other IPAA Divisons.
Now is an exciting time for IPAA Tasmania, but also a time where we need support and investment from our partners, champions and supporters. We look forward to working with all those who recognise the importance of fostering and promoting excellence and pride in the Tasmanian public sector.
