ECA Membership Meeting
Wednesday, May 10, 2023


On May 10, 2023, the Electrical Contractors' Association (ECA) held its Regular Membership meeting at the Union League Club of Chicago in Chicago, IL. The meeting was an excellent opportunity for members to learn about the current economic and market outlook for the Chicagoland area. Examining project spending, segment trends in construction, and supply chain challenges. 

Topics of Discussion:

  • US Economic Condition (Growth Headwinds & Tailwinds)
  • Inflation and Geopolitical Risks 
  • Government Investments
  • Impact of Supply Chain Disruptions
  • Standard Product Lead Times

Overall, the May membership meeting gave ECA members valuable insights into the US economic condition and its potential implications for the construction industry. The presentation by Graybar also highlighted the importance of partnerships and collaboration in advancing the electrical contracting industry and mitigating the impact of supply chain disruptions. We want to thank Graybar for the thoughtful discussions! 

The next ECA Membership Dinner Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 7, 2023, at the Abbey Resort in Fontana, WI. We hope to see you there!
