Neil Sparks, ND & MJ Sparks Electrical:

"I found the venue excellent [Mount Barker] and the topics covered to be relevant and informative  I also found the sponsors to be excellent with a good range of material and information, I also got contact details from them to follow up in the future. Thank you and keep up the good work."


Chris Oehme, Traffic Control Systems:

“We [Traffic Control Systems] have been members of the association for over 30 years and cannot imagine keeping up with the changes to the industry without the support of NECA. We have been attending the NECA Roadshows for a number of years now and really get a lot of valuable information out of them and would encourage others to make the most of the association.”


What’s Next on the NECA SA/NT Calendar?

The next event on the NECA SA/NT calendar is the Annual NECA Industry Gala Dinner, which will be held in the brand new Panorama Ballroom at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday 10 September 2021. The event is a great opportunity for industry and members alike to get together, network and to reward the outstanding achievements of our industry through the Apprentice of the Year Awards and the Excellence Awards. The NECA Industry Gala Dinner is a great celebration of the year gone by and includes excellent food, wine, music and entertainment. We hope to see many of our members there, whether large or small businesses, to enjoy this premier event. Stay tuned for further details coming soon!
