The Information Technology and Contract Association (ITCRA) continues steady growth in membership, with an 11% increase in new members over the past financial year.

ITCRA president Richard Fischer told the association’s annual general meeting on Thursday that both the growth in new membership and the retention of existing members was a “positive indication that the focus on knowledge, standards and influence were providing a service and program offering that is attractive to ITCRA’s target markets”.

“Membership growth is the overarching goal – to be able to support the membership on the key strategic areas we must maintain and develop a strong membership base for financial viability and influence.”

Fischer announced that ITCRA had achieved an operating result of $28,732, with retained earnings of $786, 498 for the 2014/15 financial year.

ITCRA CEO Julie Mills said that the “hotly contested” board election saw Peter Acheson (Peoplebank Australia), Richard Fischer (Experis), and Nicole Shepherd (Clarius Group) all being re-elected.

Nick Bacon (Clicks IT), John McCluskey (Whizdom) and Anthony Whyte (Talent International were elected to the board for their first term.

They join continuing directors Andrew Cross (Ambition Technology), Damien Ross (Davidson Technology) and Jason Trevethick (Paxus Australia) to complete the directors representing the association for the next twelve months.

Richard Fischer was unanimously appointed President with Peter Acheson as Vice President, while Winston Wickman from Paxus Australia was again co-opted as the Finance Chair.
