GEICC was formed in 2007 to engage electric, nuclear, natural gas utilities and energy industry construction in strategic, unified, and results-oriented efforts to ensure a skilled workforce to meet future industry needs.

The consortium is incorporated as a 501(c)(6) non-profit organization. GEICC includes member representatives from investor-owned, municipal, and electric cooperatives, contractors to Georgia’s energy industry, energy and contractor associations, state workforce development, education, and organized labor. GEICC was formed to help member companies work together to develop solutions to the coming workforce demands in the industry. It is the first partnership in Georgia between utilities, their associations, contractors and organized labor to focus the need to build a skilled workforce pipeline that will meet future industry needs.

In addition, GEICC has established partnerships with state education and workforce associations and organizations to leverage resources for existing and new initiatives. GEICC is also working with secondary and post-secondary educational institutions and the public workforce system to create workable solutions to address the need for a qualified, diverse workforce.
