As an award winning social enterprise NCEC is often asked to speak at conferences and training events. These engagements are managed by the “Nundah Cooperators” speakers group (a group of NCEC members who identify as having disabilities) who will consider all requests. Educational tours of our Co-operative for primary secondary and tertiary students are also available.
