WA Council

The AIIA has a very strong presence in Western 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 Western Australia’s economy. Our members all play an active role in helping to drive the state’s digital economy and contribute to shaping national agendas.  Like our interstate counterparts, the AIIA in Western Australia connects members to a network of local industry contacts here on the ground, key state government agencies, provides access to local and national events, delivers insights and business opportunities.

 AIIA’s interests and activities in WA are coordinated by the WA Council, an elected group of representatives from across our local membership, who work on a voluntary basis to promote the Association in Western Australia and the digital industry sector.
