General Information About PHCC-NA
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:
Over 285 local chapters offer members a variety of services including:
membership meetings and networking
liaison with local government
apprenticeship training programs
seminars and workshops
local public relations efforts
group insurance plans
special programs of local interest
PHCCNA-affiliated state associations can be found in nearly every state across the country. They are the bridge between PHCCNA and the local groups, and they typically provide:
a monthly magazine or newsletter
work on the adoption of uniform state-wide codes and contractor licensing
business-management and technical workshop
group advertising and public relation
an annual convention and trade show
resolution of local concerns for presentation at the National Convention

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
seminars and workshops to help members increase profits and productivity
an opportunity to meet with other PHC contractors
