and the people we serve.

NECA’s Government Affairs team has been working throughout the 115th Congress advocating NECA’s legislative agenda and the issues that impact the bottom line of NECA contractors. This will be your best opportunity to come to Washington, D.C., tell lawmakers your story, and help them understand the issues affecting your business.
NECA’s top priorities for 2017 include a wide variety of issues aimed at ensuring the businesses of NECA contractors continue to grow and prosper. These important issues include: investing in our nation’s infrastructure, creating new and innovative multi employer defined benefit pension plans, and comprehensive tax reform.
Through your participation during these critical days, we will use our collective voice to advance these issues on behalf of our industry. Participants in the Conference will take part in issue briefings and engage with Members of Congress and Washington insiders while gaining a unique perspective on the legislative process. All registrants have the opportunity to meet with legislative leaders in their offices and at our Congressional Reception.
NECA staff will ensure that all participants will have the opportunity to meet with their members of Congress and will provide assistance in helping them communicate effectively with prepared position papers and preparatory meetings putting forth the necessary talking points. By taking an active role in the policymaking process, participants are contributing to the success of the electrical contracting industry by sending Congress the message that NECA leads the industry in establishing and maintaining the highest workforce standards and performance. Join forces with other NECA members and staff working on the Association’s behalf in Washington.
Capitol Hill Visits
Meetings with Members of Congress are critically important to a successful advocacy strategy on Capitol Hill.
Congress is considering a multitude of legislative initiatives affecting the electrical construction industry, and it is imperative that your elected officials are aware of NECA’s position on issues of importance to the industry. NECA will fully brief and prepare attendees for meetings with their members of Congress. All attendees will be provided easy to read issue papers on NECA’s top issues to take with them on their visits.
