NECA Community Service Award
In 2021 NECA WA will introduce the new NECA Community Service Award which is open to all NECA members. 

The new Award recognises individuals who have substantially contributed to the improvement of their communities, beyond what is expected in their electrical contracting businesses. Specifically, their contributions on the back of unprecedented events such as the recent bushfires, floods and now a global health pandemic. 

Full details will be provided as part of the 2021 Nomination Guide but please contact NECA WA with any queries.
