The President of the National Consumers Association (NCA), Trevor Albert, has resigned half way into his two year term.

His resignation takes effect on September 13, 2016.

Albert has disclosed that he took the decision in order to attend to pressing family business.

Under his watch the Consumer Protection Bill was passed.

The NCA also continued quarterly meetings that were started under the previous administration.

In addition, NCA representatives met with Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Commerce, Industry, Investment, Enterprise Development and Consumer Affairs, Bradley Felix, to discuss matters affecting consumers.

That meeting was held in June.
