On behalf of the IAG Conference Committee, I am delighted to extend an invitation to attend the IAG 2020 Annual Conference,  to be held at the  Sofitel Brisbane Central on Friday 13 November 2020.
The IAG Conference is an annual event exclusively for accounting, finance and governance professionals and the conference agenda is designed to inspire and inform, covering recent challenges and current trends in public sector finance.
The  2020 Conference will enable us to explore different ways of connecting with you to share knowledge and enhance skills.   You will hear from our business leaders, industry experts and inspirational speakers, and be able to join the discussion on emerging issues and trends impacting the State's public sector.  
You will be provided with opportunities to hear what impact COVID-19 has had on our work environments and how connecting with each other has been hindered and enhanced.
During the conference you are invited to join the plenary sessions, delivered across a variety of topics.  Take the opportunity to network with your colleagues across government as well as our private sector sponsors during breaks, or take part in the  social event after the conference.
The IAG 2020 Annual Conference will bring together the importance of connecting with others, how these connections can transform the work we do and the people we inspire.
We look forward to seeing you in November.
Justine Clark
IAG Conference Committee
