AIPIO is committed to delivering quality cost-effective educative, training and networking events for intelligence practitioners throughout Australia.  The annual event program includes major national events such as the Seminar, Conference and Forum, as well as many smaller regional events organised by our network of regional representatives where the emphasis is on networking at the local level. These representatives facilitate smaller events with an emphasis on networking, to engage members and promote the Institute at a local level, and to keep the AIPIO Board informed about regional perspectives.  

The events calendar is designed to provide our Members and visitors to the site with information detailing AIPIO events and also those conducted by intelligence and related organisations. If you know of an event that is not on the calendar and which may be of interest to our Members or 
other intelligence practitioners then please contact our regional representatives or the Secretariat and we will review it for addition to the events calendar.

See event flyer here

Planning is underway for Intelligence 2018, which will be held at the QT Hotel in Canberra from 21-23 August 2018. Dorothy Seidel Hooke has kindly agreed to join me as Co-Convenor for Intelligence 2018. The theme for Intelligence 2018 is ‘Integrated Intelligence: working together better’, and within that theme we will explore the sub-themes of collaboration, technology, and capability.  

- Gill Wilson, Vice-President, AIPIO

Intelligence professionals make their living drawing actionable insights from sketchy data, but the growing velocity, volume, variety, and complexity of this data demands more than the popular view of intelligence as solo operators, siloed functions, and exclusive organisations. To be successful, modern intelligence profession
als must rely on ‘outsiders’ – business, academe, and public sector institutions – tightly integrated for alignment, complementarity, and synergy. AIPIO – as a critical change agent in the intelligence profession – stands ready to engage, support, advise, and partner to advance this goal of ‘integrated intelligence’.  We believe advancing this goal requires measured investment in collaboration, technology, and capability
