Opening General Session
Tuesday, October 6th • 10:30-11:15 am EST
David Long – NECA CEO
Featuring Lonnie Stephenson – IBEW President
NECA CEO David Long and IBEW President Lonnie R. Stephenson will sit down for a fireside chat about diversity and inclusion in the industry—topics that have gained critical attention this year and issues that both figures are keen to explore in the context of electrical construction. They will cover the latest on the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to electrical contracting, and the chat will end with a question and answer session. Long will also discuss the innovative work happening at ELECTRI International, which NECA established in 1989 to help electrical contractors meet industry demands and challenges by funding, conducting, coordinating and transforming research results into meaningful, useful educational and consulting programs and practical publications.
