IEC Georgia Announces Its Chapter Territory Expansion

Expansion r
IEC Georgia’s Board of Directors expand the vison and reach of the Georgia chapter to include 14 additional counties. The process began on June 5th when the Board advised that the Tri-State IEC had dissolved.  After review and consideration of the chapter resources, it was determined that taking on all but a few counties in Alabama of the old Tri-State would be a good move for the chapter.  Then a request for chapter territory expansion was submitted to the National Membership Committee.  Finally we received unanimous approval from the IEC National Board of Directors at its board meeting on October 24th.  
IEC Georgia is comprised of 132 counties, now including the 9 counties from the old Tri-State chapter in Georgia and 5 from the old Tri-State chapter in Tennessee.  The Tri-State chapter was dissolved earlier this year, leaving a void in its area.  IEC Georgia has the resources to serve the previously abandon territory, and is prepared to provide the exceptional benefits IEC has to offer.   IEC provides online and onsite apprenticeship program, association and industry communication, government affairs updates, management education, manpower assistance, networking,  safety tools and resources, and membership growth incentives.  The Georgia Chapter travels to provide safety, code and other pertinent training to contractors in its jurisdiction.  The embrace of the 14 additional counties will increase IEC’s span and the impact of creating the best apprentices in the industry.
The new counties included are; Catoosa, Chattanooga, Dade, Fanin, Gilmer, Gordon, Murray, Walker, Whitefield in Georgia, and Bradley, Hamilton, Marion, Polk and Squatchi in Tennessee.  To the potential contractor members and potential partner members in the new counties, IEC’s doors are open and ready to serve.
 

Financial Assistance Available to ALL IEC Students

Financial AidDid you know that there is an opportunity for every student in the IEC’s program to apply for and possibly receive some type of financial assistance for their tuition and/or their books?  Let me tell you how.
Scholarships! – this benefit is open to ALL students
Scholarships can be found in a myriad of places.  IEC lets all students know about scholarship opportunities we are aware of.  Students can also find them on their own.  Now is the time to start looking for them and making a list of where to apply.  Most applications are due in the Spring (March/April).   Places to look are:
This year, we are proud to announce that 3 of our students received scholarships from all of the sources listed above.  Scholarships are paid directly to the IEC and we will notify the Contractor and Student once it is awarded.
 
Georgia is home to 13 military bases, over 72,000 active duty personnel and more than 94,000 veterans.  Many of our veterans may be eligible for the Post 9/11 Montgomery GI Bill.  It is an education benefit program for individuals who served on active duty after September 10, 2001. Once approved for their GI Bill, it is paid directly to the veteran; he/she will receive a percentage of a monthly housing allowance and a book/supply stipend each month.  Full benefit amount is paid as long as a minimum of 120 hours are worked in a month. 
IEC currently has 21 veterans receiving their benefits.  Each year, the list keeps growing as more and more veterans enter the civilian workplace.
Workforce Investment Opportunity Act (WIOA) – this benefit is paid directly to the IEC
The premise of the WIOA is to increase employment, retention, and earnings of Americans.  Through WIOA, clients increase their employability and earning power by gaining the skills they need through specialized training or retraining in a career of their choice.  To be eligible for this program, an individual must be unemployed or underemployed; a US citizen or lawful permanent resident; and meet other qualifications as determined by the Local
This is a Win-Win-Win Program for the IEC, our Members, and the WIOA Client.  The IEC has interested individuals who are eager to start working in the Electrical Field to refer to our members.  Members hire an employee whose school fees are paid for up to two years. And the WIOA Client is back in the workforce, supporting their families while learning a skill that will benefit them for a lifetime.
At this time we are happy to report that all 8 of our WIOA funded students are working for our members and that we have graduated 10 WIOA clients since we started enrolling them in 2010.
As IEC finds more ways to help our Members and Students with their educational expenses we will keep you informed.  Look forward to early March for information on Scholarships open to all students!
