The National Electrical Contractors Association represents, promotes and advances the interest of the electrical contracting industry. Our efforts benefit all branches of the industry - including skilled electricians, linemen, installers and technicians - as well as the customers it serves; but our Association's chief purpose is to help enhance the position of its member companies.
NECA meets this commitment through numerous programs designed to help members take advantage of technological innovations, meet the challenges of a changing economy, secure fair representation in legislative and regulatory processes, avail themselves of training and highly skilled employees, and market and deliver the best possible services to customers. Our slate of member services is constantly evolving and expanding. You will find in these pages some basic information on what NECA does to help members grow and prosper. You may obtain additional information from you local NECA Chapter office. And, you can always find up-to-date information on our website at the National NECA Website
How can Electrical Contractors Avail Themselves of NECA Services?
Electrical contractors affiliated with NECA's National organization gain access to its member services and programs through membership in their local NECA Chapter. There is a NECA Chapter representing each major trading area in the nation, and each Chapter serves as the multi-employer bargaining agent with its corresponding local union(s) of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW).
NECA Chapters operate autonomously, elect their own officers, set their own dues and service charges, and determine their own priorities. Each Chapter operates its own local programs and provides services for its own members in addition to the services provided by National NECA.
Each NECA Chapter has a professional staff member whose duty is to manage the Chapter's affairs and programs on behalf of the local membership. NECA's National organization conducts a broad-based program for training competent professionals to assume Chapter management positions, but each Chapter selects its own manager and office staff.
