Issue: November/December 2020
Deadline: August 7, 2020
How have the NEC-2020 changes impacted your work? Did your jurisdiction just move to the NEC-2017 earlier this year? Write about how these changes have impacted your work. We’re also looking for articles on receptacles, outlets, and so forth. For example, discuss 406.5(G)(2) and receptacle orientation under sinks or even 406.9(C), bathtub and shower space receptacles. Since it will be the holidays when this issue comes out, you could also discuss the different types of electrical receptacles and how to use them safely during the holidays. Are you an installer? Write about how to safely install receptacles and how to avoid getting the dreaded red-tag. Interested in writing a story about these topics? Or want more potential topics to write about? Email submissions or ideas (or code violations with explanations for inclusion on iaeimagazine.org) to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 7, 2020. Include a 50-word bio. Visit iaeimagazine.org for more info on submitting a story.
P.S. Have another story idea? We’d love to hear them. For additional suggestions, here’s our editorial calendar for 2020. Feel free to submit a story before the deadline, and we can hold it to the relevant issue.
We look forward to hearing from you!
