Graybar, Lutron Give to NAED Education & Research Foundation
ST. LOUIS... The National Association of Electrical Distributors today recognized the generous support of distributor Graybar and manufacturer Lutron for their $10,000 donations to the NAED Education and Research Foundation.
The contributions put the NAED Foundation closer to its $200,000 fundraising goal for the Annual Contribution Campaign ending in June 2012. All funds go toward providing industry-leading education and research programs for the $70-billion electrical distribution channel.
"Industry support is the lifeblood of the NAED Foundation," said Michelle McNamara, NAED senior vice president and executive director of the NAED Education and Research Foundation. "The generosity from Graybar and Lutron will help the NAED Foundation provide the tools, training and knowledge vital for the success of our members. We are honored and thankful for their support."
For more than 40 years, the NAED Education & Research Foundation has provided members with the latest industry information, valuable education tools and industry research initiatives. Past tax-deductible donations have led to preparatory courses for the Certified Electrical Professional program and the newly launched Branch Manager University, among other initiatives.
