WISA has existed as a voluntary organisation for 25 years. WISA is a not for-profit, independent, productive organisation and network.
Meeting expectations for structure, accountability and transparency in not-for-profits, and WISA’s expansion of activities, WISA is now a Company Limited by Guarantee, governed by the Corporations Act 2001 and ASIC. WISA is controlled by a National Board of Directors. In January 2022, WISA also moved from an entirely volunteer-run organisation to employing an Executive Officer.
