Message from the ECF President
Welcome to the Electrical Council of Florida’s web-site. If this is your first visit, please take a few minutes to learn more about ECF and the many things our members do to support the electrical industry and the communities where we work and live with our families. Guests are always welcome at ECF chapter meetings throughout the state. Be sure to visit the “What’s Happening at ECF” monthly event calendar update and read the latest Blog updates to stay current and informed about issues of importance to the Electrical Industry and our ECF members.
2022 has been a year of recovery, as our members were challenged with both a chance to have jobs lined up ( a good thing) and a shortage of supply chain materials, (a bad thing), plus the critical need for experienced electricians and helpers. Toss in two hurricanes in 60 days that delayed on-going projects, impacted labor shortages and increased everyone's stress level.
Little did we know that we would now be facing the need to find realistic ways to rebuild homes and businesses while trying to keep prices fair for our customers.
Now, more than ever, membership in ECF has shown the value of belonging to an association such as ours.
Today, ECF’s local Chapters host meetings, attend CE classes, plan community service projects and special events. I encourage you to attend any upcoming chapter meetings to get to know the ECF manufacturers, suppliers, utilities and business associates who attend and support these chapter meetings and special events. Building Inspectors and Plans Examiners are encouraged to participate in chapter and educational programs.
ECF continues to work with the apprenticeship schools near our chapters to support and encourage quality on the job training and mentoring opportunities. It is critical for workers of any age to learn and understand the fundamentals needed to build a stronger workforce that is technically advanced and proficient in dealing with new industry advances, updates and future challenges.
ECF offers information about updates regarding any ECLB, NEC, NFPA, and FBC code changes. ECF offers members free CE classes for license renewal. It's not too early to start working on getting your CE's for the next renewal cycle that began on September 1st. Members have the opportunity to attend classes taught by qualified instructors at no cost and many local chapters offer interesting and informative educational programs as part of their meeting schedules.
ECF always welcomes your ideas and suggestions.
The Electrical Council of Florida is a non-profit trade association, owned by its members.
ECF's primary purpose is to strengthen all segments of Florida's electrical industry. While there are issues that are unique to specific disciplines, many share common goals which can be achieved through communication and working together.
The association was formed in 1961 by a core group of twenty-two industry leaders who shared the vision of unifying the rapidly changing electrical industry. Today, ECF continues to support new technology, harmony and cooperation ion as "Florida's Electrical Industry Leader".... More
Our mission is to create an environment of mutual growth and recognition of all facets
of the Electrical Industry and to promote the Common Good.
