NACO was formed in March 2011 when members of the Queensland-based Motion Picture Exhibitors’ Association of Queensland voted to take its membership national, and to reflect the new status, also agreed to change the name to the National Association of Cinema Operators-Australasia.
The Board now incorporates senior executive members from major national cinema operators, as well as independent operators, and from each state of Australia.
Then Chairman, Peter Beattie AC, commented at the launch – “Industry associations such as this one, play a vital role in the system of government in this country, allowing governments to sound out initiatives and allowing an industry to have one voice in approaches to government.”
