Identifies you as a systems professional
Customers and municipalities can check you out by calling MSCA. We will verify that you are a member in good standing and subscribe to our Code of Ethics. MSCA handles complaints about members to ensure fair treatment of all concerned.
Keeps you informed
You don't have time to attend meetings and hearings regarding Massachusetts DPU regulations, Massachusetts C & D licensure, permit and wire inspector issues, etc. As a member of the MSCA, you can get current information on changes that will affect our industry. Our general membership dinner meetings, held nine times per year, feature informational speakers, manufacturers' displays of the latest equipment, and a report on MSCA activities.
Saves you money
Membership in the MSCA allows you to take advantage of reduced rates on courses and provides an bi-annual updated Guide to Mass Cities and Towns free of charge.
Gives you help
As a member, we can assist you in getting or renewing your professional licenses, and we intervene for the industry as a whole with such entities as the Massachusetts Department of Utilities, the Boston Police Department, and the Board of Electrical Examiners. In September 1997, we published a Guide to Massachusetts Cities and Towns that lists the police and fire departments and wiring inspectors in every town in the Commonwealth. This guide is free to our members and is updated every other year. Brenda Furtado is available daily to help you with problems and get information to you.
Helps get you business
Our members frequently refer business to one another all over the Commonwealth. We send your name to consumers that call us for information on our members.
