As you are aware, the ITCRA Board of Directors has, with the support of Members through consultation and voting, agreed to merge with the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (Global) in order to ensure that the demand for ITCRA to become a voice for other companies in the broader professional staffing sector is realised.
Members have voted throughout the process to support this merger with APSCo Global and become part of an organisation that spans the United Kingdom, Singapore, Hong Kong and Germany. The opportunities will continue to unfold over time but the day to day business of representing the needs of professional staffing companies across our target verticals: IT & Telecommunications, Engineering, Banking, Finance & Insurance, Graduate Recruitment and Accounting; will continue but with a greater depth of resources and an expanded Membership base.
APSCo Global recognises the mobility of the professional workforce and the importance of organisations who represent that workforce. It is becoming more and more important to have a global voice on issues related to the role of staffing companies, to have standards that are recognised across borders by clients and regulators and to provide statistics and metrics that truly highlight our worth to economies across the globe.
The most significant factor will be a unified lobbying and advocacy program with respect to the value of a mobile, flexible and professional workforce, managed by quality recruitment organisations in multiple locations.
APSCo Australia (an entity of APSCo Global) will not change the way local Directors, Committees and the Secretariat operate – nor will it change the support Members receive or the direction on issues and programs. What will change is the access to increased resources, cross border recognition and the engagement of a global voice on important issues affecting the sector.
In order to complete this process Members must vote, as per the Constitution, on a name change and on a change to Membership category titles to mirror the APSCo Memberships in other countries.

ITCRA Member Satisfaction Survey
Late in 2014 the ITCRA Board of Directors released a Member Satisfaction Survey to review the acceptance of the revised Membership Structure
The Board developed key strategies, values and goals as a draft for 2015-2018, based on Membership feedback over the last two years and, in response to changes in the practices of ICT recruitment and contracting.
The Member Satisfaction Survey took the unusual position of introducing the draft key strategies and values for the next three years for Members to prioritise and provide feedback on and, at the same time, capture current programs and initiatives under the draft goals – to assess what is and isn’t of value to Members.
The results of the survey have been reviewed by the ITCRA Board and are available to download here.
