QLD Council

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

AIIA’s interests and activities in Queensland are coordinated by our QLD 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. The AIIA in Queensland aims to:

  • Increase the awareness of the digital economy outside of the ICT Industry
  • Engage with Government at all levels on the benefits and long term value of the digital economy
  • Engage with other industry bodies and encourage them to look to their members needs in relation to the digital economy; and
  • Position the AIIA as a trusted advisor on the digital economy.
