IEC Chapter Membership Drive


The annual membership drive initiative is vital to driving growth of IEC membership across the country as chapters and their members reach out to electrical contractors in their area.

A stronger IEC yields a better, stronger industry for us all.

IEC members know the value of our association. IEC continues to invest in the future of the industry and member companies through education, advocacy, networking, conferences, and so much more. Now is the time to communicate that to prospective members in your area.

A few ways you can encourage prospects and introduce them to IEC are:

  • Invite a colleague to a Chapter event
  • Pass along your Insights magazine to a friend
  • Encourage a competitor to enroll their employees in the IEC Apprenticeship Program

The 2016-2017 Membership Drive is already underway! IEC chapters have set self-determined growth percentages as a goal to reach in the next year. IEC National will work alongside these chapters to provide support and assistance in meeting and surpassing their goals. The chapters who reach their goal will receive special recognition at IEC Con 2017, October 25-28, in Phoenix, AZ.
