President urges members: Renew & rally as polls loom On the back of another successful annual conference, the NTCA would like to thank our members for their continued support. The NTCA annual conference attracts international guests and national interest and provides us a platform to highlight issues of importance. As a result of consistent member engagement and high quality speakers the conference is highly sought after by sponsors and industry colleagues wishing to engage and support our event. Continued member support has enabled the NTCA to be recognised as one of the most influential and relevant state industry bodies in Australia. The strength of the NTCA is in its membership, united voice and consistent approach to addressing challenges and opportunities for our industry. To advance and protect the interests of our members the NTCA shall continue to remain engaged and informed at all levels, seeking at all times to enhance long-term productive relationships with our trading and supply chain partners, consumers, the broader community and other stakeholders. We are now embarking on a year that will be dominated by a Territory and Federal election and will require NTCA leadership on key issues affecting industry and Northern Australia. The NTCA will be maximising its attention on key issues at the Territory and national levels during 2016. The continued involvement of members in our association is critical and we encourage all members to renew.

It was a huge eye-opener, program manager Tara Fulwood says. They didnt realise, until visiting the displays and talking to people, just how big and broad-ranging the industry was, and the enormous spread of jobs people did to keep the industry going.
