Chairman Duane Hendricks Recognized by National Electrical Contractors Association
November 8, 2022
As part of Egan Company’s commitment to the ever-changing industry, employees stay actively involved with NECA, the National Electrical Contractors Association. According to NECA, electrical contractors count on NECA to deliver the resources that help them make better business decisions, provide excellent customer service, and take advantage of innovative technology. One of the many ways NECA is “the voice of the electrical construction industry” is through regional and national meetings.
Earlier this month, Egan Chairman of the Board, Duane Hendricks, was honored as an inductee into the Academy of Electrical Contracting. One of the highest honors in the industry, Fellows for the Academy of Electrical Contracting are chosen based on the contributions they’ve made to the association and the greater industry. Having spent years in various leadership positions of the NECA Minneapolis Chapter, Hendricks is still involved in his retirement.
“This came as a huge surprise to me as inductees don’t apply, but rather are secretly nominated and put through a 2-year review and acceptance process. It’s a great honor to be selected into this group of highly distinguished individuals who were selected for their commitments and contributions to the industry. It truly was a surprise and pleasure to be recognized for my commitment to the industry as I’ve never worked for an award, but instead I always provided help where there was a need, with the hope of leaving the industry in a better place,” stated Hendricks.
Eight inductees were installed on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at the Opening Session of the NECA Annual Convention in Austin, Texas. When asked what he is looking forward to, Hendricks said “as a member of this group, I will continue to participate in industry studies and am looking forward to helping improve our industry for the future while networking with others.”
