The Alliance is organized to:
- Allow the member states to respond quickly to emergencies, natural disasters, and construction booms where the demand for skilled labor cannot be met locally.
- Encourage the development and use of electrical examination questions, structure, and delivery methods that are common and acceptable to member states.
- Share best practices regarding electrician and electrical contractor licensing and certification, inspection techniques, regulatory language, etc.
- Encourage support and networking among member states to improve the standardization for all regulatory aspects of the electrical industry.
- Encourage the membership of other states who have similar electrical regulatory requirements, practices, and oversight of electricians and electrical contractors and are willing to reciprocate on a similar basis with the member states.
- Create a strong alliance where member states focus on the many similarities of their training systems, inspection techniques, and regulatory oversight with the belief that each member state holds the inspection, training, licensing, and certification of electricians and electrical contractors as the key to protecting the general public and workers.
- Members collaborate frequently, via email, throughout the year on various electrical code issues.
- Continually keep members abreast of changing electrical licensure and code requirements in their respective states.
