NECA Peer Group Initiative
NECA National is excited to introduce new Contractor Peer Groups to offer a range of high quality options to best fit Contractor Member firms.
The NECA Peer Groups are groups of companies that operate in the same industry sector and are of similar size. Participants in Peer Groups have an opportunity to share experiences and gain perspectives from individuals in the electrical construction industry that do not operate in the same geographic market, enabling an environment for trust and the open exchange of ideas and information.
NECA has established relationships with three outside professional facilitators: Maxim Consulting, HopeStar LLC, and FMI, to organize and facilitate the meetings for the groups.
