IECRM Advocacy Update

Please take a moment to view the recording and review the presentation from the Annual IECRM Policy Forum. IECRM and the electrical industry have a great deal on the radar right now that is – or will be – impacting business…from the status of OSHA rulings, deliberations of the PRO ACT, implementation of the federal Infrastructure Bill, debates regarding Solar and EV Charging Station policies, start up of the new State of Colorado Apprenticeship Agency, the agenda of the 2022 Legislative Session and the upcoming midterm elections. 

This month, we have three “asks” as it relates to IECRM’s Advocacy: 

  1. Become a member of the IECRM Government Relations Committee; we advocate for you and YOUR VOICE matters. Join us to decide on legislative positions during the meetings, receive the Action Alerts when we share bills that are introduced in the Colorado Legislature; be notified immediately of asks for industry examples of impact; or for your voice in an email, phone call, or in person committee testimony. Contact marilyn@iecrm.org
  2. Sign up to receive the IEC National news from Capitol Hill. Contact jtodd@ieci.org 
  3. Donate to the IECRM PAC Fund. As we close out our year of celebrating forty years as an organization, I ask each member to contribute at least $40 in honor of the organization’s successful advocacy all these years. These funds are used to directly support state legislative candidates who support the mission and vision of apprenticeship, small business, skilled trades and the electrical industry.Register to receive your PRIDE PAC APPROVAL
