GAIN Australia logo

The Government Agencies Information Network or GAIN Australia is a national network supporting agency information and records managers in the Australian Government.

GAIN Australia provides professional development and networking opportunities through online and face-to-face forums and events. It includes information and records management updates from the National Archives and also provides mechanisms for information management professionals across government to share their expertise and experiences.


GAIN forums provide an opportunity for dedicated information management professionals to network with colleagues from Australian Commonwealth agencies. You will have the opportunity to discuss contemporary information and records management challenges and priorities.
