Delivering solutions for associations

About Us

Our Vision

We strive to be recognised as the best supplier of Integrated Websites for Associations in Australia and North America.

We aim to achieve this by providing Associations with the right tools to create an experience for members that is personalised, targeted and effective. With our collective experience and expertise, we truly believe that we can help Associations achieve unprecedented levels of performance.

We place Associations in the driver’s seat, enabling them to deliver an array of content and services to their members which is always relevant and beneficial.

Our Values

We deliver solutions that utilise best in breed technology coupled with a lifetime commitment to the Association sector.

We combine the principle of a single source of truth for every insight about your member with the ability to provide the most relevant and refined experience in every interaction they have with the Association.

We recognise and appreciate the trust that members place in Associations, and the trust Associations put in us as a partner to deliver the most loyal and effective journey as possible.


Where it began

In 2010, we (Jay, Stuart and Mick) founded 3DN with a mission to improve the lives of members and customers of Associations. Our commitment to Associations extends as far back as the early 1990’s where the journey first began.

Over the years, we’ve collectively racked up 50 years of experience working with hundreds of Associations across Australia, the US and the UK. 3DN’s long term specialist knowledge and passion for changing the way Associations operate continues to inform our work.

First there were three. Now there are five in Australia and four in India.  Together as a team we work tirelessly creating technology solutions that help Associations streamline their processes and optimise the experience for their members and customers.

Our People

Mick Varga

Managing Director

Mick has devoted almost his entire working life to the not-for-profit sector, having worked in and then provided products and services to the sector since the early '90s.  He is really committed to improving the way organisations deliver to their members and supporters, and can be pretty vocal in trying to stop the executives making bad decisions - decisions that don't deliver value to members or to the organisation.

Mick is a husband, father of 3 young kids, a lapsed footy fan given the disaster that is St Kilda, and a golfer whose game started poorly and continues to diminish in quality.

Stuart Lee

Technical Director

With a degree in Engineering (IT) and over 25 years in the IT industry, Stuart has focused on intelligent integration providing charities and associations with the tools to do what they do best. His pet hates include data silos, double-entry and arduous manual processes.

Prior to founding 3 Degrees North, for 8 years Stuart was employed as a senior technical consultant at ASI, successfully partnering with clients throughout the globe, blending technology and process to achieve their goals.

Jay McCormack

Production Director

After working for ASI for over 7 years, Jay left to start his own consulting business and then soon joined forces with Mick and Stuart to found 3 Degrees North.  Jay has extensive web experience in both building and managing large scale websites for both for profit and non-profit organisations.  In the past he has administered sites getting over 25,000 visitors a day and has even built a horse racing website in Mandarin.

Jay is passionate about the web and how the internet can be used to make your organisation more efficient and effective. At 3 Degrees North Jay plays the role of Solution Architect, bringing together all of the technical pieces to solve customer problems.
