Formed in 2002 to unite web industry professionals across Australia, AWIA's purpose is to keep members up to date with news, events, resources and best practice, and to build trust and understanding of the Australian web industry.
AWIA has become one of the largest dedicated web industry associations of its kind in Australia. Our monthly networking meetings regularly attract 40-60 individuals from varying cross-sections of the web industry, our occasional speaking events have attracted 150-200 attendees each, and our online communities (Facebook, Twitter, Slack, LinkedIn and Meetups) have over 7,000 active participants and a total of over 40,000 posts.
