Welcome back,

Welcome, NECA 2018 NextGen Attendees!

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) will be hosting its second annual NextGen Conference September 5-6, 2018, in Washington, D.C. This annual meeting is the premiere legislative conference for the next generation of electrical contractors to learn about the top issues affecting the industry and to meet the leaders who are working to provide real solutions.

This conference is about policy, not partisanship. Accordingly, leading members from both sides of the political aisle will be on hand to brief participants on the latest happenings on Capitol Hill and to engage in robust policy discussions to ensure that YOUR voice is heard during the policy making process.

Additionally, members attending this conference will have the opportunity to join the NECA NextGen Political Leadership Council (PLC) program.
