The Australian Web Industry Association (AWIA) wants to represent every person in our industry who is ethical and professional – developers, designers, hosts, managers, consultants, SEOs, marketers, sys admins, content providers; the lot. Even social media experts.
We want members to meet each other, develop friendships, learn stuff, start businesses, be profitable, make a difference, debate issues, be influential in the world and, like it says in our constitution, have fun.
We know that well-run professional associations can do things individuals cannot. They can run programs and campaigns. They can influence how business, government, students and the general public view an industry. Even influence profitability. But none of these things are going to happen unless you help us get our ducks in line.
We can turn this into something you’re proud to belong to. And something that gives you real benefits. But we need to improve our financial viability and we need a larger member base.
This: join, turn up, talk about us. Complain about things then help us fix them.
The AWIA Vision is that
- web industry professionals see AWIA as intrinsic to their professional development and membership as a statement of credibility,
- AWIA is the top-of-mind web industry information resource for members, clients and government,
- clients see AWIA as the home of ethical, professional web development and work with members to drive innovation, growth and efficiency, and
- careers are well-paid and prestigious, and entrepreneurship flourishes.
