Welcome back,

Business Development Task Force

NECA developed the Business Development Task Force in 2011 as a response to the evolving electrical construction industry. The goal of NECA’s business and market development program is to prepare NECA contractors for new forms of electrical work and provide the tools and knowledge they need to add these important services to their company. We need to transition into this new market and maintain the high standard of quality electrical work that NECA contractors are known for.


To maintain and grow NECA member's market share by providing the knowledge, tools, resources and conditions for success.

The Business Development Task Force provides a framework where non-proprietary information on best practices and successful initiatives are shared. It addresses not only traditional lines of business but also emerging technologies in design and construction, energy efficiency, wind, solar, EV, data centers, smart grid, and energy storage. The Task Force also explores opportunities related to topics like financing, tax incentives, advocacy, education, research, tools, training, and collaboration with federal agencies, state or local governments, universities, other associations or industry groups.
