Future NTCA

You are here

The Future NTCA was first established in 2014 to foster and develop leadership skills within the Northern Territory beef industry’s next generation of leaders.  

Now approaching its third year, the program has seen participation by a diverse group of young Territorians with a wide range of backgrounds and skills, all aspiring to contribute to strengthening the pastoral industry.  The program has been successful in optimising the potential of the industry’s youth; capturing new ideas, networking and injecting renewed enthusiasm.
