40th Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate forty years of the Office of the Commonwealth Ombudsman. For forty years, our office has provided assurance, integrity, influence and improvement for government, industry and the public.

To acknowledge this important milestone, we are hosting a dinner at the National Museum of Australia on 4 April 2017. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with some of Australia’s top government leaders.

The following day, on 5 April 2017, we are hosting a full one-day conference at the magnificently designed Old Parliament House. With history echoing through the corridors, Old Parliament House provides an appropriate backdrop to discuss the Commonwealth Ombudsman’s past achievements and future opportunities.

Keynote speakers will be discussing topics based on the conference program themes:

  • Evolution, industry and parliamentary ombudsmen in Australia
  • The ombudsman integrity and law enforcement oversight
  • Some overseas perspectives
  • A state viewpoint from the beginning to where we are going

This once-in-a-decade event provides opportunities to network with delegates from other ombudsmen and related organisations from Australia and across the world.
