The NATIONAL ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS ASSOCIATION is a national trade association that serves the electrical construction industry. NECA’s Mission is to serve the management interest of the entire technical contracting industry as the voice of the industry that brings power and communications systems to life. NECA’s Members are provided services that include business management education, public relations, marketing training, technical information, research and development, communications, labor relations, insurance plans, safety programs and construction industry leadership.
While most contractors do not have the resources to achieve this wide range of services individually, it can be accomplished through the collective efforts of all members. The area electrical contractors obtained a charter as the Northern Illinois Chapter of NECA on October 1, 1964. A predecessor organization, the Northern Illinois Electrical Contractors Association, was organized on March 29, 1948. The local contractors have long recognized the need for a strong association and can effectively deal with their common problems.
