Frequently Asked Questions


Answer: Membership in NECA begins with a local chapter, organized by geographic location. Local NECA chapters review all initial membership applications. Once approved for membership by a NECA chapter, an electrical contractor is eligible for national NECA membership. The chapter submits the contractor’s application for national membership.

Answer: NECA membership is only available to a firm or corporation engaged in the business of electrical contracting, defined as the business of erecting, installing, repairing, servicing, or maintaining electric wiring, devices, or equipment.

This means NECA members are the electrical contracting companies. Employees at NECA member contractors are eligible for all member benefits after they are added to their company’s membership record by the company’s NECA-affiliated representative.

NECA’s members are primarily signatory contractors who hire union (IBEW) electricians. Non-union firms may be approved for membership, depending on the policy of their local chapter.
