|WECA's outreach teams have been hard at work out in the communities we serve, attending events and encouraging your future workforce to consider apprenticeship and careers in construction.
A big thank you to members Helix Electric and Capitol Valley Electric for partnering with us at recent events. We have several more coming up--scroll down to see if there's an event in your region on which you'd like to join forces!
These action shots are of John Knapp of Helix Electric, at the Port of Los Angeles - SRBX - CIEF Trades Day, telling young people about the rewards of a career in the electrical industry.
And here's WECA instructor Zach Wallace in action at the 2023 Diversity Job & Career Fair put on by the Greater Sacramento Urban League.
