Association Updates

by Clara DeRosier, Executive Director

Members of the Association gathered together at Breezy Point a few weeks ago. The weather was perfect and the time together was unforgettable. The quarterly report was distributed to attendees, and I wanted to point out a few highlights for those unable to attend. Since leadership last met in April, a lot of progress on initiatives has been made as well as a few record-breaking numbers to report.

  • Strategic Plan Initiative - Brand Discovery Workshops
  • New policy manual created procedures for all departments, board and staff to review
  • Staff attending the “Qualified Association Specialist Program”
  • Strengths coaching and strengths based leadership workshop for staff
  • 52 apprentices currently enrolled in the Association’s Registered Apprenticeship Program (Record High!)
  • 17 New Members in 2019
  • Pilot PLC course sold out in the spring
  • Commitment to conduct training at 2020 NCEL Expo
  • Developed an extended apprenticeship training course
  • PLC, VFD, HMI, Solar, Safety and Exam Prep will make up the 7-month course
  • Trained close to 2000 electricians in 2019
  • 2 new instructors have been hired to help with training growth
  • Registered Apprenticeship Program approved for Veterans to utilize their GI Bill
  • Building Committee Day was a success

There are many new offerings in the works and the ability to get feedback from committees and board members is invaluable. It is the number-one way that we are able to ensure the products we create are actually the products you need to run your business and train your employees. Summer is a hard time to get away so we are endlessly thankful for all who could make it for the event!

New Business Training Event Friday, Dec 6!
