Alberta’s AEA to “align with all facets of the electrical industry”
By Anthony Capkun
September 18, 2019 – “There’s a lot of energy and momentum in the electrical industry right now. Things are modernizing, changing and evolving,” said Tara Ternes, executive director of the Alberta Electrical Association, as she explained the rationale behind the non-profit organization officially changing its name to Alberta Electrical Alliance, effective immediately.
By incorporating “alliance” into its name, AEA aims to “align with all facets of the electrical industry”—from manufacturers and wholesalers, agents and inspectors, utilities and contractors, to “everyone in between”.

“It’s important to us that we align with all of the different pockets of the industry,” added Ternes. “Our mission is to embrace the diversity of the industry, continue to support our members and create new connections across Alberta.”
The Alberta Electrical Alliance also promises a better online presence, employing its social media channels to announce news and events, share member stories, and bring awareness to the Alberta Electrical Alliance’s “ongoing endeavours to strengthen and support Alberta’s electrical industry”.
