The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is a nationwide trade association representing the electrical contracting industry. The Association provides management and technical services to NECA’s 5,000+ members. As individuals we come together as one by sharing cost with others within the Association, member electrical contractors enjoy the wide range of services provided by a strong trade association.

Services provided by Southern Indiana Chapter NECA include: labor relations, marketing aids, technical training, business management, education, public relations, government affairs, advertising and safety programs.

The National Electrical Contractors Association, Southern Indiana Chapter, NECA was founded and incorporated in 1947 by electrical contractors in the Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky area who recognized the need for a strong association that could deal with their common problems.

We’re proud of our rich history and tradition, but in today’s fast paced world successful organizations focus on the future. Southern Indiana NECA members and the Association itself will continue to set the standard for the industry and continue to work towards a stronger Union Electrical market share.

Subjects discussed may include such areas as Labor Relations, Marketing, Industry Relations, Technical and Training Programs, Codes and Standards, Government Relations and Legislation, and Employee Training.

It could also include representing you in your own community with trade groups, architects, engineers, government, the Business Roundtable, and other business leaders. All this can best be described as an addition to your sales force through visibility and public relations.

Cooperative Relations

NECA represents its member contractors in virtually every aspect of the electrical contracting industry by working with other organizations in coalitions that speak with a voice louder than the individual groups that make up the coalitions. NECA takes the lead in forming and administering many of these groups, and this participation helps NECA members in two ways: it explains the needs and considerations of electrical contractors to everyone whom our members must work; and it provides our members with the very latest information on new markets, marketing methods, technological developments, laws and regulations, management techniques, and any new areas that become crucial to contracting operations.

NECA is working in these and other areas through cooperative relationships with: American Arbitration Association, American Council for Construction Education, American Consulting Engineers Council, Alliance for Fair Competition, American Institute of Architects, American SubContractors Association, Associated Specialty Contractors, Board of Contract Appeals, Business Roundtable, Construction Industry Cost Effectiveness Program, Construction Specifications Institute, Edison Electric Institute, National Association of Electrical Distributors, National Conference of States for Building Codes and Standards, National Electrical Manufacturers Association, National Federation of Independent Business, National Fire Protection Association, National Institute of Building Sciences, National Lighting Bureau, National Small Business Association, Office of Federal Procurement Policy, Small Business Legislative Council, Chamber of Commerce of the United States.

NECA continues to lead the way in formation of new cooperative arrangements with these and other groups to represent the interests of its members.
