The Centre Asia

The Centre for Corporate Public Affairs is a membership-based organisation comprising major corporations and organisations, many trading internationally, in Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Established in 1990, it is the only organisation of its type in the Asia Pacific region to support, advance and research corporate public affairs as a management function, encompassing government, media and stakeholder relations, corporate social responsibility/corporate citizenship, issues management, internal communications and reputation management.

Membership is by organisation. The Centre has more than 100 members from the ranks of companies, industry associations and government business enterprises.

The Centre has been acknowledged internationally as a thought leader by business leaders, academics and professionals working in the field of corporate public affairs.

We create platforms for mutual exchange within the profession's leadership, excellent professional development programs and information resources that allow senior public affairs practitioners, senior executives and line managers to:
better interpret their social, political and economic environment;
contribute significantly to the way their organisation relates to its internal and external stakeholders; and
strengthen the role of corporate affairs staff as part of management teams and as key advisers to senior management.

The Centre helps member organisations via:
professional development and training;
research and information resources;
international affiliations; and
peer group dialogue and mutual learning.
