Monday, December 10, 2018

With 2018 drawing to a close we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the ANZ CompTIA community this year. Without your participation and contribution we would not have the meetings, meetups, webinars and initiatives that we have had for the ANZ CompTIA Community in 2018. Your continued support, attendance and contribution is hugely appreciated and we believe is what delivers value back to our community. 

2019 is now only around the corner and we are sad to farewell some of our Executive Council (EC) Members that have finished their terms on the EC.
