MOST of this week's Pulse magazine is dedicated to local talent.

Congratulations to the worthy winners of this year's NCEIA Dolphin Awards, but also big congratulations to the North Coast Entertainment Industry Association for celebrating the Dolphin's 25th anniversary in fantastic style.

You may not know this but the NCEIA is formed by a bunch of volunteers who spend a lot of time supporting local musicians. Why? Because we must support our local artists.

The NCEIA's executive is formed by Brett Hamlyn (President), Gary Pinkerton (Vice President), James Palmer (Secretary) and Mark Pidcock (Treasurer).

The NCEIA's board also includes John McPherson (Public Officer), Mariska Pinkerton (Dolphin Awards Coordinator), Wendy Ford (Sponsor Liaison), Carola Woods (Sponsor Liaison), plus Tony Baron and Janina Bruyn (General Board Members).

Many other locals have contributed over the years to make the NCEIA into what it is today.

If you would like to support the NCEIA in any capacity, feel free to visit their website and contact them via nceia.org.au.
