PHCC Department of Government Relations
|As a plumbing-heating-cooling professional, your daily focus is on getting the work done and running a profitable business. If you’re like most contractors, that’s enough to keep you busy, with little time to think about the many legislative and regulatory issues that affect you and your livelihood. But relax — that’s why PHCC exists.
PHCC-National Association’s Government Relations Department provides a voice for the p-h-c industry in Washington, D.C., and empowers members to participate in effective local grassroots activism. Our work includes highly effective representation on the federal, state and local levels.
For additional information about PHCC’s Government Relations activities, please contact PHCC Vice President of Government Relations Mark Riso by email or phone at (800) 533-7694.
