For the best reference for the ACS, see Tom Worthington.

He's a CBR local who became ACS President for two years, has given
testimony before the Senate and as an expert witness, has served as ACS
Board Member in multiple capacities and has segued this into a
successful consulting and lecturing career - including Visiting
Fellow/Adjunct Senior Lecturer @ CSE ANU.

To quote his site:

I'm sure Tom would be happy to extol the virtues of the ACS for the
price of a coffee.
