What is NECA?

The National Electrical Contractors Association, founded in 1901, is a national trade association with affiliated chapters. NECA represents, promotes, and advances the interests of the electrical contracting industry, of all its branches, and of the public it serves through the NECA Officers and Staff. The members are companies, divisions, departments, sectors, groups, and subdivisions whose principal function is electrical contracting.

NECA is composed of a National Headquarters, 4 Regional Offices, 10 Districts, a Field Service, and 128 Chapters (including international). NECA policy is set by its members who act through a Board of Governers. The Board of Governors consists of an elected member from each chapter, the Association President, a Vice President from each District and a Vice President at Large.

Policies and programs established by the Board of Governors are carried out by the Executive Committee through the NECA Officers and Staff.

Members who serve on various committees advise the association on programs and activities that should be considered and pursued.

The various services and programs available through the national association and the Field Service are implemented by the local chapters.
