The members of IBEW 193 are proud to be a part of the Springfield community. Through the last several years, we’ve been involved in a multitude of community projects to improve the quality of life for everyone in the Springfield area.

Computer Banc
In every community, there is always a need to recycle and donate computers to the people who need them. And the members of the IBEW 193 take this very seriously. In the Fall of 2007, 193 held its 2nd Annual Poker Run to raise money for Computer Banc. And on October 30, 2007, Local 193 was excited to be able to present a check to Computer Banc for $3,200.00.

The rest of the year, members of Local 193 tirelessly contribute their time and efforts to set-up computer drop-off locations and provide the man-hours to make it all work flawlessly.

The members of IBEW 193 have wired over a dozen Habitat for Humanity houses in the last several years. Volunteers have spent hundreds of hours wiring these homes, from the initial rough-in phase to the final trim-out. This is a wonderful community service project and 193 will continue with their efforts.

The Springfield Chamber of Commerce Q5 Partnership
Recently, the Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new initiative, The Quantum Growth Partnership (Q5). This is an ambitious five-year, $4.3 million strategic plan for the economic growth in the greater Springfield metro area and will provide thousands of good paying jobs. And to make it work, organizations needed to get on board.

IBEW 193 has made a significant donation to support the efforts of the Q5 Partnership. Dave Burns sits on the Q5 board and provides guidance and input on behalf of 193.

Southeast High School
When Southeast High School in Springfield needed a new lighting system for their football field, the members of IBEW 193 came through. Volunteer electricians spent countless hours setting up the equipment and wiring the lights. When it came time to turn them on for the first game, everything lit up perfectly the first time.
