Stepping up Quickly
As of June 18, 2018

What do two NECA Chapters, one industry ally, and one electrical contractor have in common? Each has stepped up and responded immediately to the challenge grant designed to support ELECTRI International's Talent Initiative.

When Southern Contracting and O'Connell Electric announced this new challenge, ELECTRI was confident of broad-based support from the industry community. Thus far, the San Diego County Chapter and the Long Island Chapter have each invested $25,000 as has Collins Electrical Company from Stockton, California. A leading industry manufacturer, Ideal Industries, has committed $50,000 of its new gift to ELECTRI to the Talent Initiative. This combined new funding of $125,000 has released a total of $50,000 from the challenge.

For additional information on ways that your chapter or company can match the challenge, contact Russ Alessi, ELECTRI President, at or 301-215-4518.
