Who is NECA?
In 1901, a group of electrical contractors met at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY, where a major display of electric power had been installed. These 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.
Electrical contractors perform specialized construction work related to the design, installation, and maintenance of electrical systems. A NECA contractor is the best resource for any and all electrical needs, including power supply, fiber optics, telecommunications, security systems, wireless networks, and lighting.
NECA represents electrical contractors from firms of all sizes performing a range of services. While most NECA contractors qualify as small businesses, many large, multinational companies are also members of the association.
NECA’s national office in Bethesda, Md., four regional offices, and 119 local chapters across the country support the electrical contracting industry through advocacy, education, research, and standards development. NECA chapters are independently chartered organizations who work with national field representatives to develop effective labor agreements and market initiatives.
NECA enhances the industry through innovative research, performance standards, progressive labor relations, and workforce recruiting and training. NECA also publishes ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR magazine.
