In a departure from
the past, the New York State Association of Electrical Contractors will
conduct its 2014 Annual Meeting in a single day rather than the
three-day convention format. Our Association is no different than many
others that have seen dwindling attendance, as business and family
obligations peak during the summer months.
The meeting will be held in Manhattan at the ‘21’ Club, 21 West 52nd
Street, New York, NY 10019. The meeting will be called to order at 2:30
PM and is expected to conclude by 4:00 PM.
If you plan to attend, please guarantee your spot by returning the
registration form as soon as possible, and note the registration
deadline of July 8, 2014!
Should you have any questions regarding the meeting, please contact the
NYSEC office at (518) 852-0154.
