Grow your organization as an IEC Chapter

IEC chapters comprise a vibrant network of professional nonprofit membership organizations that share the IEC mission. We work together to increase the workforce of our industry by utilizing the nationally recognized Four-Year IEC Apprenticeship Training program, providing leadership and professional learning opportunities for our members, and advocating for policies that support our businesses and bottom-line. Our 50 chapter network is a leading force in creating opportunity. 

Chapters are autonomous organizations, each with their own purpose and priorities, but they also are an extension of IEC’s mission and community. Our priority is to offer reciprocal, meaningful engagement opportunities between IEC and our chapter that results in advancing our mission locally and nationally.

"I found being involved in my local chapter and at the National level has made the business person I am today. As a volunteer, you think you are serving to support IEC improve the electrical industry but, serving is the best education you can get as a business person. Volunteering & attending IEC events, you are around likeminded business owners, managers & contractors who share experiences, making it easy to learn what is best for your company and grow as a business person. IEC apprenticeship developed me into a professional electrician, but being involved with IEC has developed me as a business professional."  

~ Troy Corrigan, Corrigan Electric & IEC Membership Chair
