We have identified that Victoria needs a voice that represents all players in emerging technologies – regardless of their business size or structure, or the industry they operate in.
There’s a number of shared challenges that those in emerging tech that repeatedly come up in our panel discussions at The Churchill Club including:
- Managing data security and privacy
- Funding support and investment for development and implementation
- User skepticism and unfamiliarity
- Accessing, developing and retaining talent
Our role moving forward will be to assist those in emerging technologies – whether they be researching or developing, implementing into business, funding or regulating them.
We recognise we need to be an impartial and transparent organisation, that’s not driven by commercial imperative, to assist in advancing emerging technologies and accelerating industries here in Victoria. Incorporating as a not-for-profit will assist us in realising this purpose.
We will be hosting a pre-incorporation meeting on Thursday 26 October 2017 for Churchill Club members to agree to this proposed transition.
HOW CAN YOU BE A PART OF THIS CHANGE?
We encourage you to become a financial member of the Churchill Club to support us in making this possible.
By becoming a member you will have a say in the running of the organisation, including the ability to vote at our upcoming Pre-Incorporation Meeting, along with a host of other member benefits.
Above all you will be advocating for the advancement of emerging technologies that provide the most optimal solutions for us all.
