ACT Council

The AIIA in the Australian Capital Territory connects members to a network of local contacts, events, information and business opportunities. The AIIA has a very strong presence in ACT through its membership which represents the depth and breadth of the diverse ICT community. Our members play a significant part in the development of the Territory’s economy. 

AIIA’s interests and activities in the ACT are coordinated by our ACT Council (listed below), an elected group of representatives from AIIA members who work on a voluntary basis to promote the Association and the ICT industry.
