WECA Attends Joint IAEI Southwestern/Northwestern Section Meeting in Bakersfield

Friday, September 8, 2023

WECA exhibited our role in the electrical industry to hundreds of attendees at the Joint IAEI Southwestern/Northwestern Section Meeting in Bakersfield last week.
Electrical industry professionals from across the country, including California, Arizona, and Utah, attended this conference; attendees included inspectors, contractors, plant and facilities engineers, and manufacturers.
WECA was a high-voltage sponsor for the event. This allowed for Terry Seabury, Executive Director and CEO, Jimmie Slemp, long-time WECA Instructor and IAEI member, and Rex Hime, Central Valley Regional Relationship Manager, to educate the attendees o
n what makes WECA training and apprenticeship so special, including our emphases on Code knowledge, safety, and hands-on, competency-based apprenticeship training.

With WECA now having training facilities across California, Arizona, and Utah, this event was a great opportunity to spread awareness about not only the merit shop philosophy and the services and benefits we offer to contractors, but also about the Apprenticeship and Electrician Trainee Programs we offer!
A big thank you to WECA board member John Pavletich and Pavletich Electric & Communications for also sponsoring the event and helping us to wave the WECA flag at the event this past week.
