The North East Multicultural Association (NEMA) was established in February 2005 to represent the interests of Culturally And Linguistically Diverse communities (CALD) in North East Victoria. It passionately advocates and promotes multiculturalism regionally.
It is a not-for-profit, community-based organisation working closely with Local Government, Ethnic Communities' Council of Victoria, Regional Ethnic Communities' Councils and holds a membership with the Federation of Ethnic Communities Councils of Australia.
NEMA has developed a vision and will embrace this statement through its programs, projects and activities as "The Voice of Multiculturalism in North East Victoria".
NEMA's activities and services encompass advocacy; community development initiatives; aged care programs; support groups; cross cultural training; celebrations, multicultural plan development and welcome kits for migrants.
NEMA represents five municipalities - the Rural Cities of Wangaratta and Benalla and the Shires of Alpine, Indigo and Mansfield.
