A Message from CEO Marilyn Stansbury

Workforce development is the most crucial issue that we face together in 2019. A solid workforce is crucial to your business and IECRM is dedicated to providing relevant services and benefits, working behind-the-scenes in partnership with state and county workforce development operations to create and ensure a skilled workforce pipeline for IECRM members.

In this issue, read about all of the free member benefits to help you find the next generation electrician: upcoming Career Fairs, the online Job Board, our Hire List, our committees at work, engagement with the state and county Workforce Development centers, and many other services IECRM delivers every day to support your business. Please take a moment and refamiliarize yourselves and your human resources staff with these very valuable tools.

In fact, we continue to be a bit amazed that the IECRM Job Board is one of the most underutilized tools we offer and we urge you to use it!
