Founded in New York in 1883 as the National Association of Master Plumbing, and since 1963, Plumbing, Heating, & Cooling, PHCCNA is the oldest construction trade association in the country.
The association's original credo is still appropriate:
" . . . to advance the science and art of our trade by encouraging inventions, making known discoveries and improvements in appliances, fostering an interchange of thought, and eliciting and communicating the result and experience of all. "
Today, PHCCNA is made up of over 5,000 members representing all segments of the plumbing-heating-cooling industry, including residential, commercial, industrial and institutional. Whether serving as prime contractors or sub-contractor, PHCCNA members do work in the following fields:
Serving & Repair
Heating (warm air, hot water, steam, heat pumps)
Over 285 local chapters offer members a variety of services including:
The National Association is a clearinghouse of information, also a powerful voice for all its members. Though the National headquarters, just outside Washington, D.C., the PHCCNA provides its members with:
Connection - a twice monthly newsletter
Execugram - a monthly publication for staff and volunteer
leaders of state and local chapters
legislative and regulatory lobbying on Capitol Hill
technical publications and updates on important issues
Business management publications, videos and seminars
apprenticeship training programs
annual convention and trade show
During the Convention and trade show, contractors, manufacturer distributors, architects and engineers from all over the country come together to discuss the state of the industry, its problems and its progress. The PHCCNA convention is the place you can find:
the largest PHC industry trade show in the country, where
manufactures display the newest products and equipment

What are the advantages of having a national association?
The national association develops a wide range of publications educational, programs, apprenticeship training programs and other services that would be impossible for individual contractors, state associations or local groups to accomplish. The National Association is the combined voice in Congress of thousands of contractors.
What are the advantages of having state & local associations?
State and local chapters provide service and benefits concerning issues of special interest in that state or locality.
Dues income represents only about 30% of the PHCCNA budget; the remainder comes from the sale of publications, the convention/trade show and other services. State and local dues vary, depending on bylaws and structure.
