About NACAA Inc

Since it commenced in 1967, the National Australian Convention of Amateur Astronomers has encouraged people from around Australia to share their knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the diverse aspects of amateur astronomy. It was decided at NACAA XXII in 2006 to form an incorporated national body to ensure that this tradition will continue on into the future. This body, NACAA Inc, consists of three parts:

  • A Local Organising Committee to manage all of the local arrangements for the event,
  • A Programme Committee to oversee the content of the convention, and
  • A national Secretariat to support the other committees and oversee the continued operation of NACAA.

The Secretariat hopes that this structure will ensure the continued success of NACAA, allow it to expand its role by supporting other conferences and workshops, and to improve communication between amateur and professional astronomical bodies in Australia and beyond.
