NECA, respected by legislators, regulators, and competing sectors of the construction industry, is the leading organization of major influence in U.S. government affairs and political leadership. NECA's strong relationship with the Small Business, Energy, Finance and Tax committees of the House and Senate, assists in our efforts to bring NECA member and industry issues to the attention of policymakers.
NECA's leaders came together in 2003 and made the commitment to bring our political action committee (NECAPAC) to the $1 million level. During the 2016 electoral cycle, NECA exceeded $1.8 million in NECAPAC contributions, ranking it among the top 50 nationwide PACs and the largest specialty contractor PAC. And, in 2017, NECA raised $884,000 in contributions from over 1,500 contractors.
Through NECAPAC, NECA has received greater visibility, access, and influence, in government through involvement and financial commitments, helping the electrical construction industry and NECA to achieve results on the Hill.
