National Electrical Contractors Association Awards Jeffrey P. Scarpello 2018 Robert L. Higgins Association Executive Distinguished Service Award

Jun 29, 2018

Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter Manager recognized for substantial contributions to advancement of NECA

The National Electrical Contractors Association has selected Jeffrey P. Scarpello, the chapter manager of the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter, as the 2018 recipient of the Robert L. Higgins Association Executive Distinguished Service Award. 

Scarpello has served in his current chapter role since 2003. The recognition was established by NECA’s Board of Governors in 1989. It honors a staff executive or chapter manager who has made the greatest contribution to the advancement of NECA.

“Jeff’s longstanding leadership at the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter and to NECA makes him a worthy recipient of this distinction,” NECA CEO John M. Grau said. “His outstanding work has made NECA 2018 Philadelphia and his hometown something we’re all looking forward to this fall."                                                                                                                 

Scarpello has been active planning for this year’s NECA convention and trade show, which is being held on Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in Philadelphia. He has encouraged involvement from other NECA chapters, and promotional efforts that included putting NECA 2018 Philadelphia logos on shirts, jackets, mugs, scarves and other items have been distributed throughout NECA.

At the national level, Scarpello currently serves on the Council on Industrial Relations. 

“NECA – along with the industry -- is moving forward because of leaders like Jeff and his chapter,” Grau said.
