A couple of weeks ago SAGE-AU announced that it was undergoing a name change and rebrand, to become the IT Professional Association, ITPA.
As a long time SAGE-AU and now ITPA member, this has come as little surprise. This has been something that has been on the cards for close to 4 years now. It does however mean good things for the organisation.
What I will say though is that if you are an IT Professional in Australia, your representation to government and industry is weak. Only 5% of people who identify as IT Professionals in Australia are members of a professional body like ITPA, ACS or AISA compared to say, accountants, who have near 100% membership to CPA or ICAA.
