Brenda Aynsley elected Australia Computer Society president

Aynsley will take the reins from former president Dr Nick Tate

Brenda Aynsley has been elected Australian Computer Society president at a meeting of the ACS congress in Sydney today.

Aynsley will take over from former president Dr Nick Tate, while Yohan Ramasundra was re-elected as treasurer.

Anthony Wong will replace Doug Grant as vice president, membership, while Rathika Suresh and Professor Paul Bailes remain vice presidents of community and academic, respectively.

Tate said Aynsley was an exceptional member of the ACS who had dedicated much of her time to the advancement of the ICT profession in South Australia and across the nation.

“She will be an inspiring leader for the organisation as it continues to grow in membership and relevance," he said.

“It has been a singular honour to lead the Society. We are a great organisation made so by the strength and talent of our members, volunteers and staff. I want to thank all of those who have supported me in my role.”

Aynsley said she was honoured to lead the ACS at a critical time in the evolution of the digital economy particularly in Australia, where the need for professionalism in ICT is more pressing than ever.

“As President-Elect I would like to acknowledge the work of the current President, Dr Nick Tate, and the ACS management committee, congress, boards and branches."

The Australian Computer Society (ACS) is the professional association for Australia's Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector. Over 20,000 ACS members work in business, education, government and the community.
