Benefits of Membership


As a qualified electrical professional, you have the ability and knowledge to power an entire city. But with that power comes a greater responsibility to customer safety. People rely on you to install and inspect electrical installations that affect their daily lives — such as their homes, workplaces, and schools.That’s why staying current in the electrical industry and being involved in a professional organization of peers is an important responsibility that is vital to public safety. Knowing what to do and being actively involved can mean the difference between keeping someone safe from electrical accidents and causing potential fire and death due to improper installations. When you join IAEI, you receive exclusive benefits to thank you for your membership. You also enjoy the satisfaction of helping to support a broad range of IAEI initiatives that effect everyone who cares about electrical safety. [Thirty percent (30%) of dues are allocated to IAEI magazine.]

"Wisdom. An active IAEI member will gain much of it (wisdom) by reading the information that is put out almost daily through the web, emails, magazine, etc.; by meeting and communicating with other members that are influential in the development of the NEC, I-codes and of standards; by having the names, contact information and relationships of other contractors, inspectors, utility representatives, electrical manufacturers, etc. and being able to discuss issues with them to help with decision making."
