NECA Central

NECA are always looking for ways to add value for their members. For that reason, the NECA Industry Advisory Group has come up with the idea of a NECA Central page where you can access all your frequently used contacts all in the one place. This page will be a 'one stop shop' for those in the electrical industry when they are looking for the right place to go for industry bodies, retailers, licensing, and more.
NECA Central has also expanded to involve events that NECA members can attend on a regular basis including workshops, training seminars, social events and more.
