About NECA

NECA - the National Electrical and Communications Association - is the peak industry body representing the interests of over 6,500 electrical and communications contracting businesses across Australia.

NECA is run by contractors, for contractors, and represents members in all states and territories of Australia.

Our boards (national and state) are made up of electrical and/or communications contractors from a range of small, medium and large enterprises ensuring that contractors are well represented .

We are guided by our members and the broader electrotechnology sector on the issues that matter to them and we have the expertise to these matters forward with government, regulators, and in close collaboration with other associated industry bodies.

NECA provides members with a tailored package of core services built around:

  • Industrial relations
  • Workplace health safety
  • Technical support - including NECA's online knowledge base
  • Apprentice training and support
  • Training and development
  • Legal advice, assistance, and representation

Across Australia, we employ and train over 5,000 apprentices with almost all being hosted by NECA members.

Our flagship events are the annual state and national NECA Awards celebrating the very best apprentices and industry achievements from throughout the country, and the annual national Electrical Industry Conference which provides attendees with the opportunity to hear from subject matter experts and thought leaders on a range of topics that are at forefront of the electrical and communications sector.

By joining NECA, you're joining almost 7,000 other electrical and communications contractors who are shaping our industry for a stronger and more sustainable future.
