The number of women in NECA is growing, and WIN was formed to support the professional development of women in the industry. There is a range of ways to get involved throughout the year, and NECA’s Director of Member Relations, Wanessa Alves, and NECA-contractor Gloria Ashford talk about the benefits of doing so. Next, NECA’s Executive Director of Standards and Safety, Michael Johnston, talks about the 2015 NFPA 70E changes and the popularity of the PPE Selector mobile app among NECA members. “It has really taken off,” he adds. Finally, the government affairs team’s focus is “A new Congress. New opportunities.” Executive director Marco Giamberardino says top issues include infrastructure investment and comprehensive tax reform and energy policy.
