Located in capital cities across the country, the Business Centre and Member Lounges are the perfect places for members to connect, work and unwind. The centres are equipped with the facilities members need to perform their roles seamlessly when away from their homes and offices, including computers, free wifi, meeting rooms, newspapers, tea and coffee, snacks, storage lockers and concierge services. As places for mingling and networking among the AICD's 45,000 members and their guests, the AICD Business Centre and Member Lounges are always a beacon of activity for Australia's director community.

Our Sydney Lounge remains open, subject to further government advice and public health orders. We recommend wearing face masks when visiting the Sydney Lounge and masks will be available on request. In the interests of the health and well-being of our members, staff, faculty and communities, please do not visit the AICD's NSW premises if you have been asked to self- isolate, have visited one of the identified venues by NSW Health, or are from a COVID hotspot. This includes if you are awaiting the results of a COVID test. If you have cold or flu like symptoms, we also ask that you please do not attend AICD premises.
