National Electrical Contractors Association
The Chapter Board of Directors meets every other month to discuss and plan Chapter events and news, as well as industry considerations. NECA provides technical education programs for electrical contractors on topics to help improve their bottom line, as well as to improve efficiency. It is a resource for safety, public awareness, and legislative information and support.
NECA'S Executive Manager and the Labor Relations Committee members work with the IBEW Local Unions to enforce the labor agreements and oversee employee benefit trust funds. NECA also works to manage the electrical apprenticeship programs for the area, creating a strong workforce for the future.
NECA and the IBEW work cooperatively to manage their special fund which is used for community donations and outreach and to promote safe electrical construction within our communities. Whether it is Habitat for Humanity work, installation of scoreboard or lighting for local sports teams, a Bowl A Thon to raise funds for local non-profits, or sponsoring educational programs for first responders, the NECA-IBEW team is there to make our communities a better place to live and work.
IT'S ALL ABOUT MEMBERSHIP
Whether it's a lunch meeting with speakers, a dinner, wine tasting, or a crab feed, we are here to provide the educational tools along with the social networking you need to help your company be the best. NECA contractors benefit from getting to know their fellow contractors and participation is the key. The lunch meetings are a great way to learn about new technologies, improved construction methods, and general industry updates.
Our dinner meetings are a good way to socialize with your fellow contractors and their spouses and families, and you never know what you might learn there! You get the most from your membership when you participate in our events.
And you might notice, there are plenty of smiles at our functions! Check our EVENTS page to find your next opportunity.

NECA traces its origins to the birth of modern electricity. In 1901, a group of electrical contractors joined together to foster trade and reform abuses within their fledgling industry. Today, NECA continues their work, building on a legacy of protecting the public and making innovation possible. The National Association is the voice of the $130 Billion Electrical Industry.
