More about 

National Electrical Contractors Association

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is a trade association in the United States that represents the $130 billion/year electrical contracting industry. NECA supports the businesses that bring power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities. Through advocacy, education, research, and standards development, NECA works to advance the electrical contracting industry.

NECA founding goes back to the birth of modern electricity. In 1901, a group of electrical contractors met in New York where a major electric project was being installed. These contractors joined together to foster trade and reform abuses.
