A tad harsh on the ACS, I think.

In New South Wales the ACS have an open source SIG, and you don't need
to be a member to come along to the SIG meetings (but members will get
priority e.g. if there is not enough room at a meeting).

The SIG home page is here:
  http://acs.org.au/nsw/sigs/opensource/index.html

Also, the ACS can be a good place to network - i.e. find work.

All the best,
