To be recognised by industry, professional bodies and user organisations as the premier representative body for IT Service Management (ITSM) in Australia.
What is itSMF Australia?
itSMFA is the Australian chapter of an international forum headquartered in the UK. There are more than 2600 members in Australia, including IT professionals in every industry imaginable. It is a forum in the true sense of the word in that the knowledge comes collectively from the membership and is shared freely amongst members.
itSMF is the only internationally recognised and independent organisation dedicated to IT Service Management.
itSMFA operates Australia wide and is responsible for producing 28 Seminars throughout the year in all major cities. The vital work of the State Committees includes hosting seminars, selecting topics, recruiting speakers, organising venues, liaising with sponsors, managing registrations, and liaising with the National Office. State Chairs convene the State Committees, supervise special interest groups and assist the Board in the general management of the Forum.
