NECA CEO John M. Grau released the following statement in response to the passing of International President Emeritus Edwin D. Hill:
Ed Hill was a devoted champion of the electrical construction industry, and he was a tremendous partner and friend during my tenure at the National Electrical Contractors Association. I worked with Ed for several decades and started working particularly closely with him when he joined me on the National Electrical Benefit Fund trustees more than 20 years ago. His remarkable life and legacy of service at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will be remembered as a time of great progress and cooperation for our industry. Everyone at NECA extends our condolences to Ed’s family and the IBEW.
