Mission statement

The association’s original intention is to "Share" and "Guide":

  • Share is to share information and
  • Guide is to guide each other

in the ever changing and increasingly challenging IT roles.

It also fosters collaboration and development in the use of information technology amongst its members for the continued growth and development of the member organizations, the local IT industry and the country in general.
