About the Conference
Join us in Washington, DC Wednesday, May 13 and
Thursday, May 14 for NECA’s 2015 National Legislative
This annual meeting is the premiere legislative
conference for electrical contractors
to hear about the top
issues affecting the industry and meet the leaders who
are working to provide real solutions. Our conference
is about policy, not partisanship. Accordingly, NECA will
ensure leading members of Congress from both sides of
the political aisle will be on hand to brief participants on the
latest happenings on Capitol Hill.
NECA’s Government Affairs team has been working
throughout the 114th Congress advocating NECA’s
legislative agenda and the issues that impact the bottom
line of NECA contractors. With a new Congress in town, 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 2015 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, comprehensive tax reform, and repealing
Affordable Care Act tax provisions.
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
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.
Together, we can guide legislative change for our industry
and the people we serve. Download Conference Brochure
