Tamara Rapozo serves on the NECA board and is the division manager of Rosendin Electric, Inc. in Sacramento. She’s been with Rosendin for over a decade and has worked on projects including the Golden 1 Center and the Sacramento International Airport.
Tamara’s advice for women entering the workforce: “Work hard, be confident, and don’t be afraid to speak up. We bring a lot of value to the industry.”
She says she is passionate about current and future NECA developments. “WIN works to make our industry stronger by advancing the goals and professional goals of women,” she says. “Being nominated to join the board was an honor. It is exciting to be part of the discussions on topics like education programs and tools, workforce development, safety, legislative information, community outreach working with the IBEW locals, and apprenticeships along with networking with fellow contractors.”
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) of Sacramento, which also serves Reno and Redding, has long been a champion of women in the construction and electrical industry.
Since 2009, NECA has supported and encouraged women to serve in leadership spaces by offering resources relating to education, workforce development and networking, including the formation of Women in NECA (WIN).
