What We Stand For

The ANZ Community supports and advances the tech industry and business community in the region. We help our members build and expand their businesses while growing tomorrow’s thriving ANZ IT channel.

How We’re Making an Impact

We create an environment where community members can collaborate, exchange ideas and network with peers in the industry to foster business success. We are building the ecosystem of tomorrow that will drive stronger business outcomes and more profitable ANZ technology businesses. To do this we focus on five key objectives:

  • Educate our members on best practices to grow and manage a technology business.
  • Provide networking opportunities for members.
  • Provide thought leadership, guidance and insight for our members.
  • Establish ourselves as the primary independent certification body for technology.
  • Contribute to philanthropic activities for underrepresented groups in technology.

Leadership

Every regional community is guided by an executive council, made up of leaders chosen from the community by community members. The executive council, which includes a chair and vice chair, collaborates with CompTIA to establish the community's priorities, initiatives and strategies.
