IEC Chesapeake offers Associate Partner Memberships to manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, specialty service providers, and other key businesses that support Contractor Partner companies and employees.

Associate Partner members believe in the mission of IEC Chesapeake and in the quality contractors that the association represents. IEC Chesapeake provides exposure opportunities for Associate Partners through affinity programs, sponsorship programs, and providing a host of events for Associate Partners to meet with the hundreds of IEC Chesapeake Contractor Partner company representatives in comfortable venues across the state.

The relationships that IEC Chesapeake Associate Partner members and Contractor Partner members have developed over the years are not only mutually profitable for respective businesses, but the formation of life-long friendships.

IEC Chesapeake Contractor Partner members turn to Associate Partners first for advice and assistance at meetings and trade shows as well as for the services they need to effectively manage their businesses. IEC Chesapeake Associate Partners are experts in their trade and essential to elevating the excellence within the IEC Chesapeake community.
