Welcome to the Georgia Chapter of IEC
Our Vision: IEC members are viewed as professionals who produce quality projects and work on time and on budget.
Incorporated in 1974, the Georgia Chapter is celebrating its 35th year and currently has 37 contractor members and 17 partner members across the state. Nationally, there are over 3,500 members with 47 chapters. The National IEC (www.ieci.org) celebrated 50 years in 2007.
The territory of the Georgia Chapter covers the majority of the state of Georgia except the Atlanta metro, which is the Atlanta Chapter (www.iecatlanta.org) and the Northwest corner of Georgia, making it one of the largest territories of any chapter within the IEC. The Georgia Chapter provides apprenticeship training, as well as, continuing education training in 7 areas across the state (excluding Atlanta): Northwest Georgia, Augusta, Columbus, Macon, Savannah/Statesboro, Albany and Valdosta.

IEC Georgia Members meeting with Senator Saxby Chambliss in DC
IEC's mission is simple, "helping independent electrical contractors succeed!"
Electrical contractors whom are independent and practice the “merit shop” business philosophy have turned to the IEC for over 50 years for the “power to succeed.” With over 3,000 members nationwide, IEC has the collective power and wisdom to assist small and large contractors alike to prosper.
Who or what is IEC and why do we care? IEC, a non-profit trade association, provides a wide range of services to both IEC members and the entire electrical community within the State of Georgia. We exist to help merit shop electrical contractors become more successful. Member or not, you should register, or login if you are already registered, on the lower portion of this page, and begin accessing information available through our site. Members receive access to much more information, and if you are an electrical contractor in the state of Georgia (outside metro Atlanta) and adhere to the merit shop philosophy of business, then we invite you to join the IEC. See all the many services we provide to over 200 members throughout the state of Georgia.
IEC Georgia Attends SkillsUSA in Augusta
On Thursday, November 20, 2014 IEC Member Contractor Ireland Electric conducted the SkillsUSA Augusta Georgia electrical wiring contest. IEC Georgia Board Member, Ralph Ireland III helped secure materials for the contest and rounded-up judges for the competition. As part of the IEC Georgia strategic plan to ensure there are enough electricians in the future we encourage contractors to get involved with their local high school construction programs. This means visiting, providing materials and training to students.
During the SkillsUSA contest nearly 300 students from local high school visited contractor booths to learn about the exciting career opportunities that are available in the construction industry and specifically the electrical construction industry. IEC Training Director, Todd Hawkins was also in attendance to promote the electrical industry to the attendees.
At the end of the day winners for each contest were identified. The top 3 placements in the electrical wiring contest were:
1st Place – Kaitlyn Goodwin – Jefferson High
2nd Place – Chris McKenney – Evans High
3rd Place – Chance Jenkins – Burke Co. High
Congratulations to each of these competitors.
