- The mission of Georgia Chapter IEC is to advocate and educate members to drive their success.
Our Vision: IEC members are viewed as professionals who produce quality projects and work on time and on budget.
Incorporated in 1974, as of 2016 the Georgia Chapter has 43 contractor members and 20 partner members across the state, and membership continues to grow. Nationally, there are over 3,000 members with 50 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. In 2015, the chapter expanded to include the old Tri-State area, adding 9 counties from Georgia and 5 from Tennessee; 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'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.
Introducing an Exciting NEW Benefit for IEC Georgia & Atlanta Members
By Niel Dawson
I have been personally researching a new member benefit for months and have gotten the approval from both the Atlanta and Georgia Board of Directors to move forward with offering this exciting new benefit that is outlined on the reverse side. Please not only take the time to read the information below, but also give our representatives just 15 minutes of your time to review this new money-saving benefit with you. Certainly call me if you have any questions.
Recent changes in the healthcare industry have spotlighted the rising cost of employee benefits. Our industry may be particularly hard-hit with this, given that we are already grappling with a shortage of skilled workers. How will we handle the rising costs of running a business with the competitiveness of the job market?
Although we cannot solve the large crisis in healthcare, we can help with another common employee benefit cost — your 401(k) plan. If you are currently offering a retirement plan, would you like to eliminate your company cost and reduce your liability for the plan? If you are not currently offering a plan, do you feel like your labor needs require you to have one, but you are concerned with the administrative burden and time commitment of offering one?
IEC has a solution for both! It's called a Multiple Employer Plan. We have partnered with a retirement industry leader, BenSource/Transamerica Retirement Solutions, to bring you an employee benefit solution that’s unsurpassed for price and value.
What are the Benefits? •No cost to the employer: No start up fees, no TPA fees, no document fees — normally $3-5K per year
New Online Professional Electrician's Program (PEP) for IEC Georgia Contractors
IEC Georgia is offering a new online Professional Electrician's Program (PEP) geared toward experienced electricians that know what they are doing with their hands, but lacks the book knowledge. Now there is an online 2 year program that provides the same Journeyman certification as IEC’s 4 year apprenticeship program.
This program consists of 9-10 week modules over a 2-year period that provides electrical theory, code fundamentals, blueprint reading and more. To qualify you must have 10,000 documented hours worked in a non-helper capacity in the electrical field.
This program is designed to bring your experienced workers to a higher level of performance by adding to and honing their current skills. For more information on how to register and the schedule, click here.
