Thousands of NECA Show-goers swarmed the floor of the 53rd trade show immediately after NECA executive director, meetings/expositions Beth Ellis cut the ceremonial ribbon. As they made their way down the aisles, they found exhibitors eager to share their latest products and services and learn more about how their companies could meet the needs of electrical contractors.
NECA 2008 Chicago boasted more technical and pre-convention workshops than any previous convention or trade show. Attendees packed sessions covering opportunities in the solar photovoltaic market, how to use LEDs in new lighting installations, and what NFPA 70E compliance in personal protective equipment will mean for their companies before the convention kicked off.
By bringing together students majoring in construction management and engineering programs, NECA's student chapter program works to foster interest in the electrical construction industry, and help create a source of viable candidates for future management positions within electrical contracting firms. A component of ELECTRI International’s Talent Initiative, the program consists of student-run chapters that are supported by NECA chapters and university faculty. There are currently fifteen active NECA student chapters at universities across the country, and at NECA 2008 Chicago, representatives from most of the student chapters were brought together for the annual NECA Student Chapter Summit Luncheon at the McCormick Lakeside Center.
