A unique structure ensures that services are made available to all contractor members. Direct responsibility for bringing NECA programs to the contractor rests with the NECA Field Service, comprised of four centrally located regional offices – in the eastern, southern, midwestern, and western areas of the United States – each with an executive regional director in charge. Each regional office maintains a full staff of trained field representatives to assist members and chapter staff in a wide variety of services and programs, ranging from labor relations to management consultation (as mentioned in the adjacent box). These specialists also help deliver nationally developed programs, such as management education courses, at the chapter level. Staff at NECA’s national office also work closely with chapter staff to make nationally developed services accessible through the chapter structure. In other words, all divisions in the organization cooperate to help members avail themselves of NECA’s vast array of services.
