IPA Groups and Committees

By harnessing the collective intelligence of our members we help them to be more progressive, sustainable and profitable.

We support a wide-ranging community of Groups and Committees. It's the best way to take advantage of the collective intelligence of our members to identify and address the important issues of the day. And these networks are the ideal platforms for you to join the debate and have your say on the future shape of the industry.

The most senior of these committees is Council. It is the IPA’s governing body responsible for overseeing our strategic focus and management.

IPA Council comprises over 45 elected members and is chaired by the IPA President, who is supported by the Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer.

The Membership Committee and the Finance Committee – are two subcommittees and are chaired by the Honorary Secretary and the Honorary Treasurer respectively.

All three committees meet quarterly.

Also reporting into Council are the IPA’s three strategic leadership groups, Commercial Leadership Group, Effectiveness Leadership Group and Talent Leadership Group. Each year these groups host key events for members. These include the Business Growth Conference (Commercial), EffWorks Global (Effectiveness) and Advertising Unlocked (Talent) 

The IPA supports an extensive range of other groups covering different areas of members' activities, from media to production, strategy to new business.
