Richardson, Texas—— The International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) today announced that its board of directors has named David E. Clements to serve as the company’s chief executive officer and executive director.

Clements has served since 1998 as chief electrical inspector of Nova Scotia Power Inc., where he is responsible for overseeing the Electrical Inspection Department. Clements began his electrical career in 1973 as an apprentice electrician, receiving his training and education through the Nova Scotia Institute of Technology, which led to the receipt of his certificate of qualification as a construction electrician in 1978.

After several years in the electrical trade, working for a local electrical firm, he decided in 1981 to take a position with Nova Scotia Power as an electrical inspector. Five years later, he was promoted to an electrical inspection specialist. He is a certified engineering technician and has received a Certificate in Management from the Canadian Institute of Management through Saint Mary’s University.

Presently, Clements sits as a voting member on the Technical Committee on Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, and is a member of the Regulatory Authority Committee and the Canadian Advisory Committee on Electrical Safety.

He was international president of IAEI in 2007 and served on the board for 13 years. During his tenure on the board he chaired a number of committees including fiscal affairs and long range planning.

Clements said, "A major benefit of the IAEI is the strength of its membership and the many network and educational opportunities it provides its members.  It is critical to continue to add and retain members, and the organization must continue to offer the best possible member benefits in order to achieve this. We must ensure that our members have useful career tools that assist them in staying ahead of the latest electrical trends, accessible and diverse opportunities for networking and strong professional development. ”

Clements will take up his new duties on July 1, 2010, and join IAEI’s board. He succeeds James W. Carpenter, a 37-year member of IAEI, who has been chief executive officer since 2002.
