ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The Independent Electrical Contractors, Inc. (IEC) is pleased to announce that New Jersey IEC (NJ-IEC) received the Legislative Chapter of the Year Award during the 55th Annual IEC National Convention & Electric Expo in Fort Worth, Texas

NJ-IEC was recognized for its work with the Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey Licensing Board to affirm that solar installations qualify as electrical work that requires proper licensing and permits. In addition, legislative bills providing much needed tax relief to New Jersey businesses were passed and the Chapter, working with the Governor’s office, is looking ahead for additional tax relief bills to be passed.

“I congratulate New Jersey IEC for its prestigious IEC Legislative Chapter of the Year Award,” said Thayer Long, IEC National Executive Vice President/CEO. “Their strong and diligent presence in the legislative arena work to keep IEC contractors competitive and strong in the marketplace.”

The Legislative Chapter of the Year Award is presented each year during the IEC National Convention & Electric Expo to recognize an IEC chapter that has made significant strides in achieving IEC’s legislative goals by pursuing legislative and regulatory initiatives that seek to promote and support the merit shop philosophy.  For more information, please visit www.ieci.org.

Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., IEC is the nation’s premier trade association representing America’s independent electrical and systems contractors. IEC National aggressively works with the industry to establish a competitive environment for the merit shop – a philosophy that promotes the concept of free enterprise, open competition and economic opportunity for all.
