2017 Market Monitor

06 Dec 2016

Market Monitor is the single largest national survey undertaken by the electrical contracting industry, and happens every two years.  This year’s survey will be even easier to complete than past years as it is online, interactive and can be completed in sections.

“The feedback we gather is invaluable for our industry, and gives us at NECA the help we need in determining the direction of our policy and industry representation,” says CEO Mr Suresh Manickam.

“The study focuses on a range of areas from the purchasing process through to non-compliant products – and everything in between.  By completing the survey electrical contracting businesses show us how they operate and make decisions – plus, it’s a great opportunity for the industry to identify areas that could be improved at NECA and by our federal and state advocacy,” he added.

The survey will run from now until the end of January 2017. All electrical contractors – business owners and employees, apprentices, business managers and purchasing managers are eligible to complete the survey.  And there are ten prizes of $500 to be won.

We hope you will support the industry by completing the survey  .
