AIIA ACT


The AIIA in the Australian Capital Territory connects members to a network of local contacts, events, information and business opportunities. With more than 40 members operating throughout the state, AIIA has a strong presence in the Territory.

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.

The AIIA in the ACT region:

  • Offers access to knowledge, advice, contacts and business opportunities in the Canberra region

  • Prepares submissions and provides business tools and networking opportunities to help local members boost their businesses
  • Promotes local ICT capability through our sponsorship of the ACT iAwards programs
