IPAA National Fellows are those members who have been recognised as having made outstanding contributions to public service and to IPAA.

Nominations for national fellows are made annually by IPAA Division Presidents and assessed by a sub-committee of the IPAA National Council.

New fellows are announced by the IPAA National President at a dinner function preceding the IPAA National Conference. Once awarded, national fellows are entitled to use the postnominal FIPAA.
