SA/NT Council

The AIIA’s South Australia and Northern Territory Council aims to be the primary industry influence on the state’s ICT business environment. We’re committed to achieving a more productive and efficient marketplace and an internationally competitive and export-oriented industry. The AIIA has a very strong presence in South Australia through its membership which represents the depth and breadth of the diverse ICT community. Our members play a significant part in the development of South Australia’s economy. 

AIIA’s interests and activities in SA/NT are coordinated by our SA/NT 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. AIIA’s objectives in South Australia are to:

  • Be the principal source of views and information on the ICT industry in South Australia
  • Represent the industry’s and membership’s interests and influence government policy
  • Facilitate co-operation and complementary activities between all members, large and small, international and Australian
  • Provide opportunities to connect our members to valuable new industries, markets and revenue streams (in SA/NT and nationally)
  • Connect our members to a growing (& returning) local talent pool and support the development of an internationally competitive industry in South Australia
  • Promote and highlight the products and capabilities of the South Australian ICT industry through the annual iAwards and events programs
  • Actively engage with the research and innovation sectors and position the ICT industry for relevant opportunities in South Australia and
  • Advocate high standards of performance and propriety within the ICT industry.
