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'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's Code Change Roadshow has Begun!
At the beginning of 2014, IEC Georgia's Executive Director Niel Dawson set out out to provide more continuing education, more networking opportunities, and more information to IEC members and those in the electrical industry. From strategic planning to excellent execution, the Code Change Roadshow has begun! The 2014 Code Changes will be effective January 1st, 2015, and CEU is due by June 30th, 2014. IEC Georgia is providing each major area; Columbus, Macon, Savannah and Augusta, with opportunities to earn 4 hours of CEU before the June 30th deadline.
This is an aggressive pursuit to education by IEC, that began in Columbus on March 18th, stopped in Savannah on March 28th, and is now moving on to Macon April 2nd. Each of these sessions offer 2 hours of CEU and will return to each area for part 2 of the 2014 Code Change, while providing another 2 hours CEU.
See the schedule below to make sure you take advantage of this IEC opportunity.

IEC/ABC Fishing Tournament Victors!
IEC Atlanta and ABC hosted their Spring Fishing Tournament on March 22nd at Lake Oconee. Members of the construction industry come together and enjoy competitive fishing, food, and networking.
If you haven't attended the annual spring fishing tournament, then you have missed some great outdoor fun. Contractors not only leave the park after catching what could potentially be dinner, but winners leave with cash and the respect of their peers.
Travis Clay and Rod Mangam of Total Rood Solutions won first place with 5 bass weighing 17 ½ lbs and received $1,200.00. Benjamin Walls (shown here) of LeMay won the Big Fish prize of $550 with a 5 3/8 pound fish. Second place winners were Chris Yates and Anthony Hampton of Lake City Construction, with over 11 3/8 lbs. Not a bad way to earn $700. Third-place winners came in pretty close with a total of 11 lbs. Dennis Wehner and Russell Shell of Lemay take home $400 as their 3rd place prize. Fourth-place winners, Eric Puckett and Billy Friend with Esse take home the final prize of $150.
IEC thanks its Platinum sponsors Atlanta Electric Distribution, Energy Systems SE, and Lade-Danler, for making this event a large success. Additional sponsors are ABC of Georgia, ABC Merit Choice, The Blue Book, Cerrowire, Duval Agency, Federated Insurance, Hagemeyer, Legrand, Lighting Associates, SelecSouce, Thomas & Betts, and DC Power Specialist. The IEC/ABC Fishing Tournament is truly a team effort and a reflection on how IEC is partnered with organizations that understand the benefit of hard work, supporting each other, and taking time to have a little fun.
