NOTICE: 2020 NC Electrical Institute CANCELLED

March 19, 2020

In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the chairmen of the 91st Annual NC Electrical Institute have canceled the meeting scheduled on April 7th and 8th, 2020. This has happened only one other time in the Institute’s history (during World War II).

On March 14, 2020, the State of North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper, issued Executive Order No. 117 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) by prohibiting mass gatherings. Section 1.a. of the Order defines a mass gathering “as any event or convening that brings together more than one hundred (100) persons in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, theater, or any other confined indoor or outdoor space.

Because the coordination of such a large event must be accomplished months in advanced, there are no plans to reschedule the Institute for 2020. Therefore, the 91st Annual NC Electrical Institute will take place on April 13-14, 2021.
