Anthony Wong has been elected as president of the ACS for two years from January 2016.
He previously served as president from January 2010 to December 2011. Wong has been on the ACS national board since January 2007.
Wong will replace outgoing ACS president Brenda Aynsley, who finishes in her role on 31 December 2015.
ACS CEO Andrew Johnson said that Aynsley had worked tirelessly for the ACS.
“Her legacy will be one of great change for the organisation and a significant improvement in the profile of women in ICT,” Johnson said.
“Brenda was our first female president, and her efforts will ensure that she isn’t our last. The ACS and the profession owe her an enormous debt of gratitude.”
Johnson said Wong had been a “dedicated servant” of the ACS and the ICT profession as a whole.
“His breadth of experience will be a great asset to the ACS as we celebrate our golden jubilee in 2016, but more importantly he will be a key part of shaping what our future looks like.”
