Message from the ECF President
Welcome to the Electrical Council of Florida’s website.
2022 was indeed 'a year' for the record books. Just as the world finally felt some relief from the Covid-19 Pandemic, face masks were carefully stored away, the 'new; hot topic became rising interest rates, inflation / recession issues and the continuing materials and supply chain shortages. Toss in a couple of fierce Florida Hurricanes as we all watched the price of eggs spiral above $5.00 a dozen and silently wondered 'What's Next'?
2023 is off to a good start and as usual, our members have seized the moment and opportunity to move forward using the skills and talents that keep the electrical industry growing and adapting to the changes that are constantly impacting our daily lives.
Now, more than ever, membership in ECF continues to demonstrate the value of belonging to an association that strives to provide current information, educational opportunities and support to help each other not only survive but to thrive in these constantly changing and evolving times.
ECF’s local Chapters host meetings, attend CE classes, plan community service projects and special events. I encourage you to attend any upcoming chapter meetings to get to know the ECF manufacturers, suppliers, utilities and business associates who attend and support these chapter meetings and special events. Building Inspectors and Plans Examiners are encouraged to participate in chapter and educational programs.
ECF continues to work with the apprenticeship schools near our chapters to support and encourage quality on the job training and mentoring opportunities. It is critical for workers of any age to learn and understand the fundamentals needed to build a stronger workforce that is technically advanced and proficient in dealing with new industry advances, updates and future challenges.
ECF offers information about updates regarding any ECLB, NEC, NFPA, and FBC code changes. ECF offers members free CE classes for license renewal. It's not too early to start working on getting your CE's for the next renewal cycle. Members have the opportunity to attend classes taught by qualified instructors at no cost and many local chapters offer interesting and informative educational programs as part of their meeting schedules.
ECF always welcomes your ideas and suggestions.
