This month, I want to extend a very special thank you to NECA’s Premier Partners, with a particular shout-out to the two newest companies joining us in 2021: Procore and Buckingham Manufacturing. These two join 3M, ABB, Federated Insurance, Graybar, Greenlee, Milwaukee Tool, Schneider Electric, Southwire and United Rentals in our ongoing program that represents the most comprehensive business-to-business marketing and sales opportunity ever presented to the $171 billion electrical construction industry.
At NECA, we are committed to connecting our members to the best products, services and solutions our industry has to offer. Procore, a leading provider of construction management software, will expose our members to new and exciting technology that will take their businesses to the next level. Buckingham, meanwhile, is a trusted manufacturer of equipment to allow people to work safely both at height and below ground. For more on Procore, turn to NECA Notes on page 84 of this issue. Buckingham will be featured in this section next month. Once again, welcome to both of these new Premier Partners!
We are also very excited to announce the imminent launch of the NECA Industry Alliance Network, which will expand our sponsorship opportunities and connect NECA members to an even wider array of solution providers. This network will include the brand-new Ambassador and Affiliate-level sponsorship programs, providing unique avenues for NECA contractors and industry-leading companies to connect with each other like never before.
Connection is a critical part of what we do at NECA—by bringing our members, our staff and these products and solutions even closer together, we can help to build an even better electrical construction industry.
