The Nassau County Association of Plumbing, Heating and Cooling
Contractors, Inc. is entering its 78th year as an organization of
professional licensed master plumbers heating contractors and cooling
contractors operating within Nassau County. Membership consists of
established businessmen who recognize the advantages of membership in a
professional organization which represents the PHCC industry.
As I have been told many times, it is important to “do your homework” first. Before you can begin any work, it is crucial to utilize our local officials who are there to address any questions or concerns you may have. Towns and villages are stretched very thin as far as scheduling inspections, although it seems there are a chosen few who have mastered the appointment process and have no problem getting inspections. We are hoping this log jam doesn’t affect our projects, but that’s why planning in advance makes everyone’s life a little easier. Our association currently has three members who are code enforcement officials and can help with any code questions you might have. This is just another valuable asset to membership.
This quarter, we will be introducing a new Membership Incentive Program, which will be presented at an upcoming meeting, so make sure to come out and see what’s in store for the future. The association is also looking into utilizing the National PHCC on-line apprenticeship program. If anyone has an interest in this program, please stay tuned because we will be working on this in the coming months.
Joe Cornetta and I will be attending the PHCC CONNECT 2015 Conference and Tradeshow at the end of this month. This event is always a great experience where attendees are given the opportunity to participate in seminars, a trade show and network with PHCC members from across the nation. At our October Meeting, we will report on the opportunities that are available to all members through our national association.
At our September meeting, Wales Darby, one of our associate members, discussed energy saving devices from Taco. Please keep in mind that we are always looking for speakers to further enhance our meetings and bring valuable information to our contractors. If you have any suggestions for possible speakers, please contact John DeLillo or myself. Our new website is up and running, so be sure to utilize it to register for upcoming events and as a resource for valuable information.
Your Comrade in PHCC,
