On Friday, September 11, 2015 over 200 members of Independent Electrical Contractors Rocky Mountain (IECRM) (www.iecrm.org) will come together at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Lakewood to celebrate the IECRM skilled trade training facility and construction-focused trade association during the 2015 Annual IECRM Golf Tournament. The event’s Premier Sponsor is Thomas & Betts Corporation, a member of the ABB Group, who is a global leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of essential components used to manage the connection, distribution, transmission and reliability of electrical power in utility, industrial, commercial, and residential applications.
100% of the proceeds at two dedicated fundraising holes will be donated to the IECRM Veteran’s Committee. The funds will be used for community outreach and career transition efforts for US Veterans.

“We believe in providing a stable, supportive, and secure career path for Veterans looking to re-enter the workforce,” said Kristin Kim Haynes, IECRM COO. “Veterans have the skills and the work ethic our construction industry values, so we have become a strong community leader and resource for these individuals to get connected with available jobs in the electrical field, engineering, sales, and managerial career paths.”
IECRM is a career transition resource for Veterans in the Rocky Mountain region, providing a Four-Year Electrical Apprenticeship Program, employment assistance, tuition assistance, and continuing education. IECRM accepts GI Bill benefits for all educational programs, and gives eligible Veterans priority for tuition assistance when all other requirements are met.
