ACS Vic means business!

Thursday, 03 Dec 2015

On Tuesday 10 November, ACS hosted the first Business Relations Advisory Council meeting.

The council was established to build strong business and industry ties with corporates and other not for profit organisations. The council will act as the ‘voice of the business/corporate sector’ and provide insights, guidance and input to a variety of initiatives at a strategic level to ACS Victoria.

The Advisory Council members were carefully selected from a group of passionate leaders from large and medium sized organsations across Victoria.

Craig Horne, Chair, ACS Victoria, started the day with an opening address about the vision of the business council. “We want to strengthen our position as the voice of ICT and advance the digital profession, therefore, we believe these types of collaborations will highlight areas of need for advocacy within the sector.”

A brain storming session was facilitated by Ernest Stabek, ACS Victoria BEC member, aimed at capturing ideas, issues and opportunities. This input will assist ACS Victoria in the development of our strategic objectives for 2016 policy strategies.

Mehrnoush Salehpour, Chair of the Business Relations Sub-committee, and her team were the originators of this initiative. “This is a perfect opportunity for ICT business leaders to help to develop the ICT community with ACS Victoria. This is a positive move in building effective engagement with other business sectors and allowing them to contribute to the advancement of the digital economy and its future”, she indicated.

The council agreed to meet on a quarterly basis through a number of networking and collaboration opportunities.
