SAN JOSE, Calif. – Larry Beltramo, President and COO of Rosendin, has been named the Interim President of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) effective April 1, 2019. Beltramo will remain President and COO of Rosendin while serving as the Interim President of NECA.
The move follows the resignation of current NECA President, David Long, which becomes effective March 31 as he accepts a new role to serve as CEO of the organization.
“As the voice of the $171 billion electrical construction industry that brings power, light, and communication technology to buildings and communities across the U.S., NECA plays an important role for electrical companies of all sizes,” said Beltramo. “I’m honored that the Executive Committee asked me to serve as the Interim President of NECA as David Long makes his transition to the staff side of the association to grow the national organization and best serve the 119 NECA chapters across the U.S.”
Beltramo had served as a Vice President at Large of NECA since January 2018. He was chosen by the Executive Committee to serve as Interim President until a new President is elected at the NECA Board of Governors meeting this September in Las Vegas.
According to the NECA Bylaws, when a vacancy occurs in the NECA President position the Executive Committee selects one of its members to become President and an election is held at the next Board of Governors meeting following the vacancy to select a new full-term NECA President. The newly elected President will take office on January 1, 2020. At their June 2019 meeting, the Executive Committee will nominate an individual for election as President.Tagged with NECA
