ECA Annual Spring Conference - June 9 - 10, 2021

Registration is Closed.

The American Club - Kohler, WI

The Electrical Contractors’ Association of City of Chicago (ECA) 49th Annual Spring Conference will be held on June 9-10, 2021 at The American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin. The American Club is one of the premier resort hotels in the country. It is the only AAA Five Diamond Resort in the Midwest. We’re sure that this is reason enough to attend this Conference. Wednesday night’s reception/dinner meeting will provide you with the latest information regarding industry events. The Thursday morning Business Session is, "Leadership Succession: Quit Talking About It and Do It" and is to be presented by Nic Bittle, Work Force Pro. This conference is a great opportunity to catch up with what’s going on in this constantly changing industry.


Please plan to attend the 2021 Electrical Contractors’ Association 49th Annual Spring Conference. Listed below is a tentative schedule of events.  

Please be aware that if you confirm for the one night’s stay and then cancel beyond the cut-off date you will be invoiced. The Association has had too many cancellations in the past and is then forced to pay for unoccupied rooms. Also, if you desire a night’s stay prior to or after the Conference, please contact the ECA, as soon as possible. Since rooms are based on availability, the ECA is unable to guarantee any extra date(s).  You will be invoiced for any additional day(s). We remind you that this Conference is intended for the accredited representatives of all Association members. There is no fee to be paid for the golf outing, the meetings or the accommodations at The American Club. We do appreciate your understanding in these matters. We look forward to seeing you at the Electrical Contractors’ Association 49th Annual Spring Conference.

PLEASE NOTE COVID-RESTRICTIONS / GUIDELINES WILL BE IN PLACE: Masks are required for anyone entering the facility. Please contact ECA with any questions or concerns: (708) 531-0022.

Registration is CLOSED!
