NEIA Has A New Look!  

We are proud to officially launch our new website!


Much time and consideration has gone into the new site to make it informative, current and useful to our members.


One new feature on the site is the "Member Log-In" section that will allow NEIA members to add, change and update their profile featured in the Membership Directory, as well as register for NEIA events and workshops. Members will be notified over the next few days of their username and password, at which point log-in will be possible.


Please take a few moments to have a look at the new site at the same address -  Your feedback is always welcome.
