  • Thanks for your interest in membership in the National Electrical Contractors Association! The following information will help to determine whether NECA membership is right for you.

    Applying to Become a NECA Member

    Membership in NECA begins with a local chapter. We have 119 such chapters in the U.S., each serving a specific geographical area. The Northeastern Illinois Chapter serves electrical contractors based within DuPage County, Kane County, Kendall County, Lake County and McHenry County.

    Please contact the chapter to receive a membership application. Upon approval by the chapter, an application for your company’s membership at the national level will be submitted by the chapter.

    NECA membership is only available to a “person, firm or corporation engaged in the business of ‘electrical contracting’ … defined as the business of erecting, installing, repairing, servicing or maintaining electric wiring, devices or equipment.”

    The primary services of the association are for signatory contractors who hire union (IBEW) electricians. Non-union firms may be approved for membership based upon the practice of each local chapter; however, many of our chapters do not accept non-union members. NECA does not offer any specific services for non-union employing contractors, who comprise a small percentage of our membership.

    Service Charges

    The cost of membership in NECA is based upon a percentage of the member company’s gross electrical payroll. There are certain discounts and maximums for larger firms. The specific percentage is determined by each Chapter, generally these are set at 1 percent or less.
