The NAED Education & Research Foundation’s current fundraising efforts are led by Joe Huffman, VP Supplier Relations, Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED), Irving, Texas. Contributions to the Foundation are accepted throughout the year, and are anchored by the Annual Contribution Campaign which takes place from October to June. Campaign funds go directly to develop and expand educational programs provided by the Foundation.
The Foundation has always relied on its members' generous support. Investment in these educational programs earns a real measurable return — your company is spared the considerable expense of developing its own programs, while your employees become the educated workforce needed to help your company become more profitable.
The Foundation puts to use contributions of every amount. If you have never participated in this Campaign, we invite you to make this year your first
Donors will receive acknowledgment on the NAED website and recognition at all NAED regional conferences and the National Summit. Once the campaign is complete, each company will also be listed in tED magazine.
