Industry Influence and Leadership

As the peak industry body for the digital industry in Australia, the AIIA actively assumes a role of leadership and influence in the advocacy of the sector and its priority areas of interest, concern and opportunity.

The AIIA advocates on behalf of the full gamut of digital business interests including technology start-ups, small and medium sized businesses, national and multi-national organisations.

While our presence includes representation to stakeholders across the public and private sectors, we have a long and successful history of influencing public sector policy as it relates to the digital industry.

Industry Influence and Leadership

In March 2020, the former Specialty Interest Groups (SIGs) transitioned to a new governance framework to become Policy Advisory Networks (PANs).

The PANs function as the collaborative bodies for all member-based policy and advocacy activities within the AIIA.

AIIA Policy PrioritiesWe work with our Board, State and Territory Councils, Special Interest Groups and members generally to identify and advocate the issues that will enable the Association to support growth of Australia’s digital economy and the growth and capability of Australia’s digital sector.

Policy SubmissionsAIIA makes submissions to a broad range of parliamentary and government inquiries into policy and legislation that impact the ICT industry and its ability to deliver productivity benefits to the economy and community.
