The National NEIS Association Inc. (NNA) was formed in February 1995 to represent the organisations providing the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme behalf of the Department of Employment in their efforts to maintain the quality of the NEIS program through professional development activities and to act as a conduit between providers and the government decision makers.
The Association has a part-time secretariat and is reliant on the voluntary services of its national executive. The Association represents over 75% of Australia's NEIS providers and over 80% of the nation's delivery of NEIS places.
In addition to supporting members, the NNA also assists in answering questions about the NEIS program and referring potential NEIS candidates to Job Active providers in their local area. The NNA has a number of strategic alliances to assist both providers and their clients, including National Australia Bank Microenterprise loan program and insurance brokers, BizCover.
The NNA holds an annual national conference. Since 1999 the conference has been held in partnership with BEC Australia and Business Innovation and Incubation Inc. (representing business incubators). This conference provides professional development for NEIS trainers, mentors and administrators.
