About NNA

The National NEIS Association Ltd. (NNA) was formed in February 1995 to represent the organisations providing New Business Assistance with NEIS, on behalf of the Department of Employment, Skills, Small and Family Business, 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 90% of Australia’s NEIS providers and over 95% of the nation’s delivery of NEIS places. In addition to supporting members, the NNA also assists in answering questions about the NEIS program

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.
