BICSI and the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) have joined forces to launch the first-ever joint summit between the two associations. The NECA-BICSI Summit, scheduled for this May 23–25 in San Antonio, Texas, is available exclusively for members of each association.
The event will connect NECA’s 4,500 industry-leading electrical contractors with BICSI’s more than 26,000 members, credential holders, and customers in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry. Conference content is designed for such professionals as owners and operators, construction superintendents, project managers, safety managers, and division managers. Keynote speakers include leading futurist and technology expert Daniel Burrus; NECA Vice President of Industry Development Lt. Gen. Ronald Bailey; and national security policy strategist Dr. Robert Spalding.
Session topics will include power over ethernet (PoE), intelligent buildings, distributed antenna systems (DAS), Fiber-to-the-X (FTTx), and more.
"BICSI is pleased to collaborate with NECA on this upcoming Summit," said BICSI CEO John H. Daniels, CNM, FACHE, FHIMSS. "Technology convergence provides exciting opportunities for different trades to pool expertise towards advancing a common goal. This Summit is one of those opportunities. Our common goal is to explore the evolving integration of data and power and how it impacts the electrician and diverse ICT trades."
“At NECA, we are proud of our regular collaborations with like-minded associations and organizations, and this joint summit with BICSI is a shining example of that,” said NECA CEO David Long. “The information and communications technology industry is overlapping with NECA’s electrical contractors more than ever before, and this event will provide an unprecedented opportunity to bring our memberships together to exchange ideas and work in service of our many common interests.”
Registration is now open for NECA and BICSI members at necabicsi.com. Attendees are encouraged to register before April 19 to ensure the early registration rate.
