The 2016 NECA Convention and Tradeshow was held last week in Boston, MA. NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association) or the voice of the electrical industry, is an organization that Thompson Electric has been an active member of for several decades.
Each year NECA has a convention and tradeshow where electrical vendors have the opportunity to introduce and demonstrate new technology and products. It’s a great opportunity for electrical contractor, such as Thompson Electric, to have discussions with vendors and suppliers on these new products and to also establish new relationships with different suppliers.
This year Skip Perley and Barney Pottebaum attended the convention and tradeshow. During the show there are many learning opportunities and guest speaker sessions to attend. Skip and Barney both attended many sessions that focused on customer services and the changing needs of customers and how today’s technology has an impact on their business. Another session that was informative was the leadership skills and how to develop and implement this training, these were just a couple of the many meetings they attended.
After the convention is over, we have discussions on what was learned from the convention and how to implement the best practices learned into everyday business.
