All of the society’s activities are underpinned by one simple yet clearly defined goal:
“To help our members be the best they can be.”
The society provides its members with a range of services that enable them to enhance their professional skills and ultimately achieve their long-time career goals within the information technology industry.
- Education and qualification programs covering a diverse range of topics
- Short course programs to help members develop better management, leadership and business skills
- Seminars and workshops that operate to enhance member’s knowledge
The society has also developed a range of communities that cater to the different needs, skills and experience of information technology professionals. These include Young IT, for industry newcomers, and ACS women, for female information technology professionals.
Members are well-informed when it comes to the information technology industry, as the society regularly distributes the latest industry news, trends, issues and research to them via its magazine, Information Age.
Other member benefits include access to technical papers and journals as well as the provision of educational support and employment advice.
The society is responsible for representing the information technology industry in business, government and education, and plays an important role in the development of public policy.
