What is IEC? - 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.
History of IEC - IEC National was first founded in 1957, as the Associated Independent Electrical Contractors of America (AIECA). IEC-OKC, Inc. (Independent Electrical Contractors – Oklahoma City Chapter) was originally created in 1961 by a group of contractors who saw a need for a collective voice for open-shop electrical contractors and a mechanism for training the industry’s future workers.
Who are IEC Members? – IEC Members are predominantly small business owners, who care about training and safety, perform all types of electrical work, provide products and services that support the electrical industry as a whole and are well established.
Apprenticeship Training Program - Apprenticeship training is a form of education that incorporates workplace training with technical in-school training. Since 1972, IEC has conducted apprenticeship training programs under standards approved by the U.S. Department of Labor.
Legislative & Policymaking Involvement - Both IEC-OKC and IEC National are deeply involved and committed to playing an active role the development of legislative issues, serving on key policy-making bodies and electrical industry related oversight committees.
