ISACA is gearing up for its first-ever worldwide day of volunteerism, ISACA CommunITy Day, taking place on 5 October 2019.   Using a live social media feed and #ISACACommunITyDay, members, staff and other engaged community members around the world will track local service projects making a difference in their communities around the world within this 24-hour period from New Zealand to Hawaii.

ISACA CommunITy day is an opportunity for our member base to come together with a defined purpose and objective to have positive impact on the broader community.

ISACA Melbourne Chapter will be hosting a Blood Donation Drive partnering with Australian Red Cross Blood Service.


Every blood donation will help save three lives.  One-third of blood donations will help treat people with cancer.   Every day, thousands of Australians receive life-saving blood donations, yet many people don’t realise just how precious blood is.  Donated blood lasts just 42 days.  With winter colds and flu on their way and preventing regular donors from giving, we request our members to help make a difference by becoming a blood donor today.

This event is aimed at bringing together not just members, but their families and friends as an extended ISACA Melbourne family. Help ISACA make the world a better place during #ISACACommunITyDay on 5 October

Before booking please check your eligibility via the quick online quiz.
