For more than 40 years, the Independent Electrical Contractors Association (IEC) has faced the challenges imposed by the changing world of the electrical industry. IEC has built a reputation as the premier trade association, aggressively working with the industry to establish a successful business environment for "Open Shop" Electrical Contractors.
IEC-OKC represents over 42 independent electrical contractors and over 21 industry partners. Our members represent small businesses engaged in the design, distribution, sale, construction, installation and maintenance of electrical wiring and devices for homes, schools, stores, highways, industrial plants, and other projects that touch every aspect of American life. IEC attempts to further the growth of our economy through skilled manpower and the principle of free enterprise.
IEC-OKC is actively involved with congressional issues that affect the everyday business of independent contractors. And we continue to develop new member services and provide education opportunities from apprenticeship training and courses targeted at journey level personnel from safety to business management training.
We Welcome You!
