Southern Sierras Chapter, NECA

The Voice of the Electrical Construction Industry in the Inland Empire



The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is the voice of the $225 billion electrical construction industry that brings power, light and communication technology to buildings and communities across the U.S.

NECA traces its origins to the birth of modern electricity. In 1901, a group of electrical contractors met at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, NY, where a major display of electric power had been installed. These contractors joined together to foster trade and reform abuses within their fledgling industry. Today, NECA continues their work, building on a legacy of protecting the public and making innovation possible.

The Southern Sierras Chapter of NECA is dedicated to enhancing our local industry through continuing education, industry and legislative updates, promotional activities, and the maintenance of sound labor relations with our partners, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. We are the voice of the electrical contracting industry, working to promote higher standards, quality workmanship and training for a skilled workforce.

The Southern Sierras Chapter of NECA represents the interests of all electrical contracting firms who are signatory to collective bargaining agreements with IBEW Local Union #440 (Riverside County) and IBEW Local Union #477 (San Bernardino, Inyo, and Mono Counties).
