October 2020 – Lemberg President and CEO David M. Washebek was elected by the National Electrical Contractors Association Board of Governors to be Vice President of its fourth district, which includes Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and the western portion of Kentucky. Washebek will serve a two-year term. He is one of five unopposed candidates moving into district leadership roles. The election took place on October 5, 2020.
“To be nominated and elected by my peers at both the regional and national level is an honor,” said Washebek. “I am humbled by this show of confidence and will do my best to be the servant leader that the NECA Chapters in District four deserve.”
Washebek has been an active member of NECA and a key influencer for the group in the Milwaukee area. Though this new position, he will provide leadership for the promotion of the NECA policies and programs at the national, regional and local level. He will continue to serve Lemberg in his executive capacity throughout this NECA appointment.
This NECA vice presidency is the second career distinction Washebek received this year. He was recently chosen as Fellow of the NECA Academy of Electrical Contracting, a distinction recognizing his local and national contributions to the industry over the course of his 42-year career.
