Electrical contractors need access to a college talent pipeline in order to sustain and grow their businesses. Contractors want to hire and retain well-educated, highly-qualified construction management and engineering graduates prepared to deliver electrical construction projects effectively and profitably in today’s competitive market.


To foster student interest in the EC industry, ELECTRI has enlisted a Talent Initiative Committee to develop a series of annual competitions and interactive projects that involve students and faculty from academic institutions working with NECA Chapters across the country.
