The National Electrical Contractors Association is the voice of the $100 billion industry responsible for lighting, power, and communication systems in buildings and communities across the United States. NECA advances the electrical contracting industry through advocacy, education, research, and standards development.
NECA is dedicated to enhancing the industry through continuing education, labor relations, current information and promotional activities. It is the voice of the electrical contracting industry, working to promote higher standards, quality workmanship and training for a skilled workforce.
At all levels, NECA provides non-labor relations type services to contractors, including detailed publications and workshops on virtually every aspect of the electrical construction industry. We develop new publications - some of them electronic - and new training events in response to the latest industry trends and member needs.
Working for a brighter future for the industry, NECA is a co-sponsor of the National Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (NJATC) for the electrical industry, which trains more than 25,000 electrical apprentices and is the sole source of significant in-service training for journeyman electricians.
The Chapter would like to thank Kathy Reehling and CREW Corporation for a fun and enlightening Social Styles Class on Friday, August 14th at the Indianapolis JATC. This course evaluated participants' communication style and taught participants how to evaluate the social styles of others - coworkers, clients, even spouses - as a way to identify the most effective way to communicate one's message to the recipient. In attendance were local union and chapter personnel, as well as many Local 481 members.
We would like to extend our sincere congratulations to our 50-year member contractors:
- AAA Electric of Terre Haute, Inc.
- Huston Electric, Inc. - Lafayette
- Lytle Electric Company, Inc.
- Nugent Nugent Electric, Inc.
And to our 25-year member contractor J & J Electric of Indiana, Inc.
Thank you for your years of high-quality work and your service to the electrical construction industry in Central Indiana!
