On November 8-12, 2021, more than 70 Members and guests of the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter attended the 2021 NECA Convention and Trade Show in Nashville, Tennessee. Our Chapter was proud to join NECA Members from across the country in a myriad of networking, education, and professional development opportunities.
We especially enjoyed hearing from inspiring keynote speakers including Archie Manning, Former NFL Player, Philanthropist, and Entrepreneur; John Rich, Country Music Star and Entrepreneur, and Daymond John, Founder of FUBU and Star of ABC’s “Shark Tank.” In addition to inspiring keynote speakers, the Convention provided attendees with networking events, breakout sessions, and a full slate of educational courses.
Chapter Executive Director Jeffrey P. Scarpello was a special guest on a Council on Industrial Relations (CIR) Panel discussion. This session was interesting and extremely well-received by the audience. At the Convention, the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter also hosted numerous networking events for its own Members. These included:
- an Opening Ceremony Reception,
- a tailgate party during the Philadelphia Eagles vs. Carolina Panthers game,
- a reception honoring the induction of Dan Hahn into the Academy of Electrical Contactors,
- and a Closing Ceremony Dinner.
Special thanks to our Associate Members at Graybar for sponsoring the Philadelphia Eagles tailgate! Thank you to all who attended the 2021 NECA Convention. Be sure to save the date for next year’s NECA Convention in Austin, Texas from October 15 – 18, 2022! We are back in Philly in 2023!!!
