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.
APPS IN CONSTRUCTION
On November 5th, IEC Atlanta provided members and partners insight to where the construction industry is going technically. Times are changing fast, and to keep up, IEC invited Training Specialist and “Construction App Guru,” Rob McKinney from J.M. Wilkerson Construction, to the Luncheon meeting to share some major pointers and benefits to using apps in construction.
As always IEC remains ahead of the trends, and provides members with processes to improve your business. Apps in construction are powerful and plentiful; therefore it is just a matter of choosing the right ones for your team and what your company wants to accomplish. The right app can help to achieve bigger profit margins, improve safety, project documentation, project planning, team communication and many other areas necessary to increase the strength of your company.
IEC Georgia Member, Mark Ellis is Re-Elected to the Southeast Regional Board of Directors
IEC Georgia is proud to announce the re-election of IEC member Mark Ellis to the Southeast Regional Board of Directors. This will be Mr. Ellis’ second two year term as an IEC National Board Member.
Mr. Ellis is Vice President of SM Ellis Company, Inc. and also serves as the President of IEC Georgia Board of Directors. Almost two years ago, Mr. Ellis accepted the additional task of becoming an IEC National Board member, and representing the Southeast region. This task was taken on with the dedication, wisdom and experience Mr. Ellis applies daily to the operations of SM Ellis Company. His re-election to this position speaks volumes to his contribution and value to the IEC agenda.
When asked what has been accomplished during his current term Mr. Ellis replies, “IEC is stronger especially in the areas of finance and legislative affairs.” He goes on to explain this is undoubtedly due to the National Board’s 3 year strategic plan to focus on four core competencies; Education/ Training, Marketing /Development, Advocacy and Industry Recognition and Public Relations. Mr. Ellis added, “IEC National’s placement of Alexis Moch, as Vice President of Government Affairs, has tremendously helped to increase participation and donations for the Pride Political Action Committee (PAC).” He modestly gives Ms. Moch her due credit on her part in increasing the strength of IEC.
