NEAA Membership Services

As a proactive industry-led cluster group, the North East Automotive Alliance (NEAA) is here to represent and work on behalf of the whole North East automotive sector, whether a company is making cars or components, working in commercial, off-highway or engine manufacture.

Members will immediately benefit from the promotion of the North East automotive sector’s capabilities on regional, national and international levels and the network’s ability to connect the supply chain to business opportunities.

NEAA member companies find benefit from leadership and co-ordination of activities, which have mutual benefit and the membership creates a collaborative network, which is a more compelling and attractive environment for investors.

The NEAA is a not for profit organisation limited by guarantee and membership is restricted to companies and not personal membership. Fees start from as little as £210 + VAT per annum and are based on a company’s number of UK employees. Membership offers two fixed periods of pro-rata fees - running from 1st January and 1st July. Any company joining part way through the year will pay a proportionate fee to cover the remainder of the year.
