Augustana College - Old Main
We Are the National Electrical Contractors Association of the Quad Cities

About Us

The Quad Cities Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association has been representing the management interests of area electrical contractors in western Illinois and eastern Iowa since 1930.

Members of NECA provide a complete range of quality electrical and communications services and, coupled with our highly trained union workforce and state of the art management tools, our members offer an unmatched combination of quality installations, productivity, timely service, and cost effectiveness.

An added bonus for our customers is that because of binding arbitration in all our labor agreements, our customers can be guaranteed the quality workmanship of union craft workers without fear of strikes or labor disputes. Our NECA member employees have never gone on strike or shut down a job due to a labor dispute.

Our members employ the most highly trained electricians and communication workers in the industry. Each worker completes a 3-5 year apprenticeship program, which includes a combination of classroom and on-the-job training.

The Quad Cities Chapter of NECA is one of approximately 120 chapters throughout the country which are affiliated with the National Electrical Contractors Association, a professional trade association formed in 1901 to serve the management and educational needs of electrical contractors and to develop and set standards for quality installations throughout the industry.
