NECA Central

NECA are always looking for ways to add value for their members. For that reason, the NECA Industry Advisory Group has come up with the idea of a NECA Central page where you can access all your frequently used contacts all in the one place. This page will be a 'one stop shop' for those in the electrical industry when they are looking for the right place to go for industry bodies, retailers, licensing, and more.
NECA Central has also expanded to involve events that NECA members can attend on a regular basis including workshops, training seminars, social events and more.

 

NECA Central Events

The first NECA Central Event was held on Wednesday the 18th February 2015 and assisted members and other electricians with the issue of Non-Compliant Products. NECA, along with the support of various suppliers, manufacturers and wholesalers hosted this seminar with guest speakers from the Technical Regulator, legal firms and insurance companies to inform electricians about the dangers of non-compliant product, what to look for, who is responsible and liable, and more.

If you missed out on this seminar and would like to see the presentations given on the night, email Leah Boyce at NECA SA/NT.

Other events we have run include:

  • Commercial Contracts Seminar
  • Chasing and Avoiding Bad Debts Seminar
  • Estimating Full Day Workshop
