Here at Central IN IEC, we’re very blessed to have the members of our family that strive for excellence and push the limits for the betterment of the industry. And for those of you who may not be familiar with our partners, what better way to highlight these members than a spotlight? So, without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to….

IDEAL Industries, an IEC National Platinum Partner, will have a 30-minute documentary of its National Championship airing on cable TV throughout the month of January, beginning today.
IDEAL created its National Championship as a means to increase exposure to our industry and tackle the growing labor shortage. To further this cause, they created the aforementioned TV documentary, and we can’t wait to see it!
In addition, IEC will be featured during the documentary with an exciting commercial directing viewers to MyElectricCareer.com.
Don’t miss out on watching the IDEAL documentary and seeing the IEC commercial on live, cable TV. Find out when and where the documentary will be aired on your local cable networks by clicking here.
Each year, IEC strives to produce high-quality content designed to inspire and educate attendees from around the world about new technology and innovations in our community.

The lights are up, there’s a dull roar of hundreds of voices and the faint scent of wax in the air, and Sherri and I have our wide “Please-talk-to-me” smiles on as we man the booth in yet another College and Career Fair. We’re in the gym of a high school, and we’re buzzing along the aisle, asking students if they’ve ever considered electrical work before.
Now, as anyone promoting the trades knows, many of these students are planning on going to college. But the boys look interested and take a brochure anyway.
A young woman comes to the booth, and I ask, “Have you ever thought about doing electrical work?”
She paused, and almost did a double take to see if I was speaking to someone behind her. Self-consciously, she giggled, as if the thought was ludicrous to her. “No, um… I haven’t.” She then suggested passing the information on to her brother and male friends.
That same interaction probably happened about 12 times in those two hours. The same look of shock. The same uncomfortable laugh. It’s as if it’s never crossed their mind that becoming part of the labor force was even an option for them.
We hope that everyone has a safe and happy holiday! We wish you and your family lots of joy and happiness.
Central IN IEC office will be closed Monday, 12/25, and Tuesday, 12/26.
