Irish Institute of Electrical Traders IIET The EIFI President’s chain of of ce bears the insignia SIET. This stands for the former name of EIFI ; ‘Society of Irish Ele trical Traders’. Membership of the SIET was composed of contractors, manufacturers and wholesalers within one group. The current membership of EIFI is composed of three contractor associations (ECA, AECI, NECI) and three, groups (AEW, LAoI, EMDA), representing interests of manufacturers wholes lers and lighting companies. The members of these six associations share an interest in the functional skills involved with the purchase and re-sale of electrical materials, applianc s and systems. Acknowledging this shared interest, EMDA has initiated a feasibility study with the objective of establishing a new division under the title ’Institute of Irish Electrical Traders (IIET)’. The technical and admin skill required to operate successfully in this function are also essential to personnel working in areas such as facilities management, plant maintenance, retail sales and electrical sectors in the construction industry. STRUCTURE Established by EMDA, (Electrical Manufacturers’ and Distributors’ Association CLG), the Institute will be administered and managed by Electric Bureau Ireland Ltd. (EBI). The Electric Bureau is a Limited company founded and controlled by EMDA. It is a ‘not for pro t’ company and its functions are: 1. Provide secretarial support and administration for EMDA. 2. Publish the trade m gazine ‘ELECTRIC.IE’ and manage the websites and social-media functions of EMDA and EBI. To support its own commercial viability the Bureau also ffers services and support to oth r industry associated organi ations. FINANCE We are pleased to announce that a feasibility proposal submitted by EMDA to REISS (Regional Enterprises’ Innovative Scoping Scheme) has been successful and EMDA has been approved for signi c nt f nding under this new scheme. We are in the best of company with many of the successful schemes submitted from universities. This award gives us not only nancial support but recognition of the value of our project. Funding announcement can be viewed at www.electric.ie/reiss It is envisaged that EMDA will invest in the project from its own resources and funds generated by the Bureau. Companies operating in all sectors of the industry will be invited to support this project. The successful circulation and media presence of ELECTRIC. IE will aid the establishment and progress of the IIET. Electric Bureau, Bluebell House Business Centre, Bluebell Avenue, Dublin 12, Ireland Tel: (01) 408 0256 Email: info@emda.ie
