The NEPA membership covers a broad spectrum of skills and disciplines but we all work in the creative or related industries including advertising and design, PR, education, photography, print, broadcasting and media.
The region can boast a wealth of talent and ability and although highly competitive, we all share a common passion for living and working in North East England. NEPA has a flexible 'committee' with an annually elected essential core team, all of whom are volunteers.
All NEPA members, individuals and companies are encouraged to work with the core team on a project by project basis to develop the range of activities we run. We want to encourage more people to actively get involved and appreciate any help with organising, promoting, selling tickets for, and turning up to events.
The more members who participate and attend, the better they will be. Higher attendances mean bigger budgets for better events in future. NEPA exists purely for its members and it is up to members themselves and their companies to support and promote the activities amongst all staff so that the organisation can continue to grow.
If you'd like to contribute a little time and effort, or have a business, social or sporting activity, something you'd like to help develop we'd love to hear from you. We'd also like to encourage extended partnerships with other organisations in the region to present a broader, united front to the rest of the world.
To get the ball rolling we'd like to introduce you to some of the people who make up the NEPA membership. Click on the names on the right for a little more information.
