NECA’s political action program collects individual personal contributions from NECA members and distributes those funds to worthwhile candidates for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. This work is carried out through the Electrical Construction Political Action Committee (ECPAC), chartered as a “separate segregated” fund under NECA’s direction.
Founded in 1978, the National Electrical Contractors Association Political Action Committee (NECAPAC) has helped elect scores of industry-friendly members of Congress. NECAPAC, the Political Action Committee of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is a separate segregated fund operating under federal law governing political action organizations. It was established in 1979 to collect funds and disburse campaign contributions to candidates for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives.
The primary NECAPAC objective is to use funds to elect and support Members of Congress whose political philosophy or position within the legislature are in support of NECA’s legislative objectives. A secondary objective is to use candidate selection and fund disbursement procedures in a manner that maximizes the interaction of NECA chapters and members with their national legislators.
