Opening General Session
Tuesday, October 6th • 10:30-11:15 am EST
NECA CEO David Long will sit down for a fireside chat in which he will lead an industry discussion on issues such as diversity and inclusion—a topic that has gained critical attention this year and one that Long is keen to explore in the context of the electrical construction industry. He will also discuss the innovative work happening at ELECTRI International, which was established in 1989 by NECA to help electrical contractors meet today’s demands and tomorrow’s challenges by funding, conducting, coordinating, and transforming research results into meaningful, useful educational and consulting programs and practical publications. Long will also cover the latest on the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to the electrical contracting industry, and the chat will end with a question and answer session.
