Finances 2012-2013

Our model of low subscription fees and self-funding events is working, we have established a healthy balance giving MICTA flexibility to be more entrepreneurial about promotion and future events.

The role of Secretary, which bears the main workload for the administration of MICTA, is a paid appointment in the constitution, but has not drawn any funds to date.



Engagement – current members

Nearly a thirdof members have not provided a profile for the MICTA website; profiles are needed to show the strength and diversity of MICTA membership.


We need to make a decision on memberships as subscriptions are now up for renewal.


We need to make a conscious effort to increase the no. of events with minimum of 1 per quarter in order to ensure value and maintain cohesion within MICTA

Introduce CPD certificates for MICTA events

work in progress

Work in Progress

Close to securing funding from Government to support development of the ICT industry through MICTA contributing to both organic growth and inward investment, in line with DED sector strategy.

The MICTA website is to be enhanced with a searchable ‘Skills register’, agreed by committee. This may extend to a full tender portal / skills exchange if support can be found.

Work with IOM Govt. to showcase local capability and encourage on island procurement wherever possible.
