Immediate Past President
Nicholas Mark is a Sydney based lawyer in the Banking, Finance and Property team at Thomson Geer. He was the founding President of AIYA NSW before leading as AIYA National President from 2015-2019. Through his experiences learning Bahasa Indonesia since he was in high school and continuing all through university and on ACICIS, Nick has a passion for all things Australia-Indonesia. Nick has experience working in the legal sector on Indonesia-related matters, as well as in compliance at ANZ. His semangat for Indonesia also led him to write and publish a children’s book in Bahasa Indonesia in 2012, titled ‘Petualangan Anak Indonesia‘ (‘The Indoventurers’), which enabled him to present at international literature festivals, such as the Ubud Writer’s and Reader’s Festival. He was also a writer on DFAT’s Next Door Land Australia-Indonesia edu-game app, which is being used by schools across Australia and Indonesia as part of Australia’s digital diplomacy program.
