Representing the Greater Boston area and Maine and New Hampshire, NECA Boston is one of the most vibrant and successful chapters in the country. Three pillars guide our mission and our representation of you, our member contractors: Intelligence, Relationships and Education.
Intelligence. Our regional focus enables us to understand the needs of our members as well as gauge the new industry trends and opportunities that are emerging in a changing construction market. In addition, the Electri Foundation, NECA’s Foundation for Electrical Construction research expands the boundaries of our industry intelligence and best practices through research and education in innovation and technology.
NECA Boston Chapter and our national organization, NECA National, remain at the forefront of the electrical industry to assist you in every way possible to provide you with the information, resources and latest project delivery, management and research solutions to support your business success.
Relationships. NECA contractors are the lifeblood of the union electrical construction industry. NECA Boston Divisions in Greater Boston and Maine and New Hampshire continue to promote harmonious labor-management relations and as well as increase productivity and profitability of our operations for our member firms and their clients.
Our relationships expand beyond labor into government and the industry at large. Our involvement in legislation and advocacy at the local, state and federal levels has enhanced our ability to influence government policy and advocate on behalf of the interests of our member companies that we serve. Our partnerships with industry associations at all levels increases our ability to create strong networks to build our business better for new business opportunities today and into the future.
Education. NECA Boston’s Educational Program offers so many varied courses and programs for you and your employees. Be sure to register for programs that can enhance your operations and provide state-of-the-art training that is unavailable elsewhere. In addition, take advantage of the many educational programs available to our member companies through our NECA National.
On behalf of NECA Boston’s Officers, Board Members and Professional Staff, we are excited and privileged to represent the interests of the electrical contractors of Greater Boston, Maine and New Hampshire. The future of the industry is bright because of the dedicated contractors and your teams, including the hardworking members of the IBEW. Our Chapter leadership is honored to provide leadership and guidance on your behalf.
On a personal note, I am a third - generation electrical contractor, with the foundation created by my grandfather and father who worked with Louis K. Comstock, a pioneer in the electrical construction industry dating back to the late 1800’s. Today, my daughter has joined that legacy pathway. The business philosophy taught to my father and grandfather by LK Comstock is based primarily on the need for cooperation among businessmen and between business and labor. I continue to be committed to this philosophy, the electrical construction industry and its future as we build our region for today and the generations of professionals who will follow us.
Stay engaged and involved!
