Welcome


 
 
In business, as in life, we sometimes have to say goodbye to friends. This is not always easy so it is with heavy heart that we will be saying goodbye to our Principal Partner Singapore Airlines at the end of May.

We will be saying goodbye in style and with a bang, with an auctioneers bang to be precise.


The NCCA together with Singapore Airlines will be holding a Dutch Auction and up for grabs are two economy class tickets* to Amsterdam flying Singapore Airlines.


For those of you whom are not familiar with a Dutch Auction, the rules are simple, we will be starting with an asking price which is lowered until some participant is willing to accept the asking price on offer or until the reserve price is reached. The winning participant pays the last announced price.


In order to participate in this exciting auction you must be a NCCA member (membership must be up-to-date).

The winner(s) of the auction will be presented with their ticket(s) at our Networking for Business workshop with Jim Parry from So-Brand on 27 May.


For more information and to place your bid go to our NCCA Dutch Auction webpage - ncca.com.au/ncca-dutch-auction. We can only accept bids via this webpage.


Good luck!


Met vriendelijke groet




Sander van Amelsvoort

President

*must travel before 31 October 2015

King's Day breakfast recap

On Wednesday 29 April the NCCA held its annual King's Day Business Breakfast at the Langham.


This year our special guest speaker was Queenie van de Zandt whom delighted the attendees with her presentation on what King's Day means to her as a child of Dutch immigrants. As it turns out Queenie as a young child actually met Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus when they visited Australia.


The NCCA would like to thank the Langham for their hospitality and their wonderful service helping make this event a fantastic experience for our members and their guests.

 
Business News
Streamlined membership renewal process

At the NCCA we are constantly looking at ways in which we can make improvements to the services we offer. In light of that, we have made some small but significant changes to our membership renewal system. 

It is now even easier to renew your membership online. If you have a SME/individual membership you will receive an invite from us 30 days prior to your NCCA membership expiring to renew your membership with us. If you have used a credit card in the past to pay for your NCCA membership and have ticked the PayPal renewal option you will not have to do anything else, the system will automatically update your membership for you. If you have not ticked the automated payment system all you have to do is click the renew link and you will be guided to our payment page where you can easily renew your membership in one easy step.

If you have a corporate NCCA membership you will receive a renewal invoice via email which can also be paid online or via Direct Debit.
 

Should you require assistance with your membership renewal please contact our business manager Victoire Blom on 0413 581 362 or via email
 info@ncca.com.au, we are always happy to help!
