Many years ago, a few contractors decided there were some things they could do better and less expensively if they joined forces.
One contracting business speaking before the local government was ineffective ~several voices were heard. One electrical contracting business attempting to change a law was ineffective ~ several electrical contractors had the law passed. One electrical business, unable to solve the problem of union encroachment joined several other businesses splitting the cost and presenting a collective voice, slowed this movement. Electrical Contractors realized that together they have more of an impact and influence in the industry.
Out of this grew CECA, an Association of businesses which perform electrical construction and who work together to make the industry better.
Education ~ A quality association will educate its members. CECA is dedicated to education by offering numerous types of education, from Lunch & Learn classes, continuing education classes and online continuing education tests that are approved in North Carolina, Virginia and accepted by letter for Georgia license renewals to promoting classes offered by our Associate Members. CECA works with Associated Builders and Contractors of the Carolinas (ABC) to offer a quality apprentice program and other educational programs. CECA and our Associate Members also offer workshops to cover pertinent issues that arise in the industry.
Legislation ~ CECA has a longtime relationship with a top rated lobbyist firm to assure that CECA and the electrical industry have a strong voice in legislative affairs. Legislators seek out CECA’s lobbyist to get our opinion on issues that will affect the electrical industry.
Labor Relations ~ CECA works in relationship with other employer associations dedicated to maintaining a union-free environment in the Carolinas. CECA and its members work together in handling labor relation issues.

Conventions & Golf Tournaments ~ A productive convention will provide attendees with a proper business agenda, a comfortable setting to allow attendees to exchange ideas and sufficient time to do both.
