From their Web site, July 2002: "The Institution of Engineers Australia (IEAust) is the largest and most diverse engineering association in Australia, with approximately 60 000 members. Like most professional associations, it provides a wide range of benefits, facilities and services to help members achieve their personal and professional goals.
