The International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) is pleased to announce it has received a $100,000 donation from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
As a long-standing supporter of IAEI, this contribution will support IAEI’s capital improvement campaign to purchase a new facility in Dallas, Texas, and further the mission of promoting electrical safety throughout the industry.
“IAEI and NFPA have always had a strong partnership and shared mission of promoting electrical safety,” says David Clements, IAEI CEO/Executive Director. “This generous donation by NFPA will enhance IAEI’s mission by allowing us to expand our resources in areas, such as education and codes and standards development, which will broaden our message of electrical safety to a larger audience.”
“NFPA works diligently to maintain the highest levels of electrical safety and IAEI has consistently demonstrated a shared commitment to that mission,” said Jim Shannon, NFPA’s president. “NFPA’s donation reflects our strong support of their efforts.”
This donation, along with contributions from the IAEI membership and other industry partners, will help the association obtain a more energy efficient facility complete with infrastructure improvements such as a state-of-the-art training center for local and remote training, a complete resource library accessible to members and visitors, and modern publication and education work stations that will improve and expand IAEI products and services.
“NFPA’s donation is a gift that will help future generations of electrical professionals understand the importance of practicing safe installation and staying current with the National Electrical Code® (NEC®),” says Clements.
