Our History 

NEASA was the first employers’ association to register under the Labour Relations Act of 1995 which allowed for the registration of employers' associations not limited to specific industries.  The first meeting of NEASA took place on 3 April 1996, when the steering committee, under the leadership of the current Chief Executive, met in Johannesburg.
