Judged by Association
Our Mothers always taught us that no matter how good we might be, we will be judged by the company we keep.
That's why we are members of organisations which align with our values and ethics.
Australian Computer Society
The national professional association for the IT sector
Benjamin is the Chair of the NT Branch of the Australian Computer Society. The Australian Computer Society is governed by a national Management Committee. This committee is assisted by a National Congress, eight State and Territory Branch Executive Committees, and three expert advisory boards - the Member Advisory Board (MAB), the Profession Advisory Board (PAB), and the Technical Advisory Board (TAB).
In addition to holding the position of Branch Chair, Benjamin represents the NT on the MAB, National Fellows Committee, Treasury Reference Group as well as ACS Congress.
Having attended many different awards nights throughout the country, Benjamin identified that the NT was significantly underrepresented (if represented at all) in spite of there being creative solutions built in the jurisdiction which, in his opinion, outshone those achievements attained elsewhere. This ultimately led to the development of a consortium of industry bodies and government to create the NT Digital Excellence Awards in 2017, which has resulted in an increase of one to zero nominations on the national stage to 20 in 2018.
