Thursday 15 December 2022 saw the official opening of the ACS Canberra Hub.

Over 60 members, Fellows and special guests came together to celebrate what has been a two-year journey since the Branch left its premises in Deakin.

The vision for the ACS Canberra Hub is for it to be the meeting place for the ACT and Canberra region’s tech community.

During the opening, ACS Canberra Chair, Peter O’Halloran, reflected on the importance of story-telling and how Yarning Circle have been an important part of Australia’s First Nations people’s culture as a place to learn from a collective group, build respectful relationships and to be a harmonious, creative and collaborative safe place to be heard.

“ACS Canberra hopes that we can learn from the success of Yarning Circles as we use this Hub to bring our community together to achieve for similar purposes”, said Peter O’Halloran.

The ACS Canberra Hub has been designed to be a place where tech professionals can come together as a community to discuss issues affecting our sector and agree on solutions.

“It is a place where members can come to learn about the latest developments and innovations in our sector”, said Mr O’Halloran.

“It is also a place where we can support the broader community in order to build a tech sector that reflects the ACT’s community and contributions to addressing digital inclusion”.

Mr Chis Steel MLA, ACT Minister for Transport and City Services, Minister for Skills, and Special Minister of State (Digital and Data) also helped celebrate the opening of the ACS Canberra Hub.

"In CBR Switched On, the Chief Minister outlined Canberra as the knowledge capital of Australia and a hub for innovation and creativity that embraces technology and a place for collaboration”, said Minister Steel.

“The ACS is a significant partner in the growth and development of the Territory’s technology industry, which is so important for our economy”.

As an advantage of being a member of ACS, we invite you to come together to discuss new ideas and issues affecting our sector and agree on solutions, as well as to hear and learn about the latest professional developments and innovations in our sector through ACS events.  

You are welcome to use the ACS Canberra Hub as a hot spot or meeting place. Booking is required. Please feel free to check availability with the ACS Canberra staff by email: [email protected]
