working for Australians in retirement

IT Management Group (ITMG)

This group was formed in mid-2014 to help A.I.R. develop a new modern website and to maintain a contemporary use of technology to allow members to be informed about issues affecting retirees and to allow them to interact more effectively with like minded members.   In August 2016 a new position of Website Maintenance was established.

The team attends to problems and difficulties experienced by users regarding the website and the Members' Register, which is maintained by local officers known as Branch Membership Officers (BMOs).


A new modern website was developed and went live on 11 June 2015.

  2. Maintain information and articles on the website to keep the information current.
  3. Continue to improve the website to be more user friendly with particular focus on layout and content.
  4. Assist members and BMOs as requested and develop educational material to make the IT experience more enjoyable.
