NECA held its annual District IX Meeting on April 4th – 6th, in Maui. The Northern California Chapter was well represented at this meeting with over 50 member contractors and families in attendance. Prior to the formal meetings, the Executive Directors and Assistant Managers from each Chapter throughout District IX met to discuss the work picture in each area, as well as business development activities and common issues. The general council meeting began with a report from NECA President David Long, who touched on goals for his tenure as NECA President. A top priority for President Long is to increase market share 10 percentage points by 2025.
Following President Long, attendees chose two of the four breakout sessions to attend: 1) A Look at the 2017 NEC Significant Changes; 2) Prefabrication Solutions by Greenlee; 3) Jobsite Safety and Ergonomics: Understanding Risk and Regulation with Power Tools; and 4) 3M – Recruiting, Retaining and Growing Employees.
We encourage our contractors to take the opportunity to attend future meetings. The next meeting is being planned for 2019, and we will provide details as they become available.
