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.
