Maureen Parkin, member of IEC Oregon Will Represent IEC on SBREFA Panel

Maureen Parkin with Parkin Electric, Inc., a member of IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors) Oregon, has agreed to represent IEC and small businesses on a Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA) panel. The panel will include small business representatives from many trades organized by the Small Business Administration. The panel will provide comments to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on the newly proposed OSHA regulation labeled Injury & Illness Prevention Program (I2P2). OSHA is required to have input from small businesses about the economic impact a regulation may have on small businesses.

On January 29th,  Parkin Electric was very honored to receive the 2010 “New Member of the Year” award at the annual Oregon City Chamber of Commerce awards ceremony and dinner at the Abernethy Center.  Maureen Parkin has largely been the face of Parkin Electric at numerous chamber functions all year long, and deserves most of the credit for this award.  Unfortunately Maureen had a schedule conflict and was out of town during the awards ceremony, but was dutifully informed and congratulated by her stand-in, via photo texting shortly after the presentation!  Nice job Maureen!

Joining the Chamber has been a great experience for us.  It has provided us the opportunity to network with other businesses, and to become more involved in our community.  The Oregon City Chamber and its members are very active in local government affairs, and supporting the community through volunteering their efforts.

We feel very fortunate to be a part of this dynamic group, thank you for your support!

PE Reps National Committees

Parkin Electric is Represented on Two National Committees!

Parkin Electric is excited to announce that not one, but two of our folks have been selected to serve on national level committees.  Maureen and David Parkin were both recently chosen to serve on committees for IEC (Independent Electrical Contractors Association) on the Safety and the Codes & Standards Committees.

Safety Committee
The Safety Committee is an advisory committee that develops and maintains IEC’s safety information and education programs, including the SPARK program, and provides liaison support with OSHA and other safety-related organizations.  Maureen also leads our Health & Safety Programs here at Parkin Electric, where she has been responsible for leading our company to an exemplary, industry leading, safety record.

Codes & Standards Committee
The Codes & Standards Committee is an advisory committee that monitors IEC’s participation in various industry codes and standards panels, reviews and recommends changes in codes and standards documents, and communicates them to IEC members and outside bodies.  Dave has also served
in a leadership capacity for several other industry organizations including: International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) for 3 terms, State of Oregon Electrical Code Change Committee member (2002, 2005, 2008) as well as currently serving on the State of Oregon Electrical Technical Committee.

Congratulations to both Maureen and Dave, we’re sure they will do a great job and contribute much with their leadership and participation on these important committee assignments!
