The Electrical Association of Manitoba Inc. began as The Electrical Service League in 1957 (26 member companies), providing service to its members and promoting the Red Seal Wiring Program. In 1991/92, it amalgamated with the Manitoba Electrical Association (MEA) to form the Manitoba Electrical league Inc. In June 2014, the name was changed to Electrical Association of Manitoba with a tagline “Strength in Connection”. The organization is rebranding itself and wants to be seen as an association that offers stability, strength and professionalism, and promotes the electrical industry.
The Association EAM is a non-profit organization made up of electrical contractors, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers, agents and consultants. The EAM provides a variety of services to its members, including group insurance, up-to-date industry information, networking opportunities, representation to governments, educational and training programs to help member companies and there employees to be current with industry requirements and trends.
During the League’s 2012 “Current Connections” electrical showcase, EAM Executive Director Gord Macpherson was interviewed by Electrical Business Magazine to discuss the League and Showcase event.
