The CPN will regularly update the Forum site page with background bio’s of our speakers so as to whet your appetite with relevant and hopefully tantalising cover stories to help you come out again into the light of day after so long working in isolation.
We believe this is a ‘risk’ worth taking and ‘trust’ you will ‘respond’ by attending the forum and take the opportunity to network with like-minded practitioners. We all need a little help from our friends and colleagues to combat corruption. Register NOW on the Forum page link.
We are really looking forward to catching up with past attendees and meeting new corruption fighters. I’m excited that the CPN can offer such a great program that is tailored to anti-corruption practitioners as well as members of the community seeking to reduce corruption in our society.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is there a cost to join the CPN and attend its seminar series?
A: No, there is no cost to join the CPN or attend our seminars. As we expand our offerings we intend to have a small membership subscription style fee to access our digital content. This fee will cover the costs of video production etc. but will not be implemented before our trial period ends in 2023.
Q: Do you offer certified training programs with Continuing Professional Education (CPE) points?
7 A: The CPN is not a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and therefore we cannot provide VET or other Qualification frameworks training. However, it is our intention to engage with an RTO in the future in order that our membership can obtain the professional training they require. In relation to CPE we are investigating this at the present time as it has not been something that the CPN has offered and if we are able to structure our seminars to meet the CPE requirements then we will seek to establish this for our members. Attendees of our Annual Forum are provided with a certificate of attendance with up to 7.5 hours recorded.
Q: Are there any education seminars held outside the Sydney Metropolitan Area?
A: At the current time we only hold our seminars in Sydney as this is where the bulk of our membership are located. We currently enable other areas of NSW to access our monthly education seminars and materials either via online streaming services or available download. It is not our intention to physically hold forums in other locations in NSW at the present time due to the logistics and the time required of our volunteer management team and presenters who give of their time voluntarily.
Q: What is the content of the seminars and forum?
A: We regularly change our guest speakers and the topics that are covered. The topics will cover areas such as Fraud and Corruption, Risk Management and Control, Privacy, Ethics, Governance, as well as Emerging Issues and Legislative changes, technology etc.
Be assured our topics are always focused and relevant to the prevention of Fraud and Corruption.
