NECA Passes 5000 members mark

The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) is pleased to announce that it now has over 5,000 members for the first time in its history.

“Reaching the 5,000 member mark is a fantastic milestone in NECA’s long and rich history. It’s pleasing to see an uptake in membership and that the services that we’re offering are resonating amongst the electrical contracting sector,” said NECA Chief Executive Officer, Mr Suresh Manickam.

“It’s encouraging to see that our products, such as WH&S advice, assistance in IR and contractual matters, training and apprenticeships as well as regular networking events are well received. We will continue to work towards improving all of our offerings for the benefit of both our members and the sector more broadly.”

“We also look forward to continuing to work on behalf of the electrical contracting sector and delivering outcomes for our members in a number of critical policy arenas,” said Mr Manickam.

“Finally, we would like to extend a special thank you to our volunteer NECA Councillors, who work tirelessly on behalf of NECA, as well as all of the staff around the country who have made this milestone possible.”
