This paper notes the development of the Australian Computer Society, the discussion of its adoption of formal qualifications for entrance, and the problems encountered by the Society, and by overseas computer societies. The paper then questions the wisdom of basing a professional society on specific machinery, doubts the existence of a profession embraced by the Australian Computer Society, and suggests that social rather than professional objectives should be adopted by the Society.
