The chapter may be 130 years old this year, but it’s always found success through embracing change and meeting members’ current needs, and the biggest need today is education and workforce development. With this podcast, we’re sharing valuable ideas across state lines. Hear how:
- A committed board and a dedicated staffer boosted the chapter’s education program to include an entire menu of offerings, from an expanded brick-and-mortar apprenticeship program and online options to programs through technical schools and even helping member companies build their own in-house programs.
- These efforts not only have resulted in more workers for the trades but more members and more revenue for the chapter!
- The chapter currently has more than 130 people in the PHCC Educational Foundation’s Fast Track to Service Plumbing program … and is determined to have 800 throughout the state!
- Its safety recognition program – R.O.P.E.S. – has taken off and even has led to contracts to build policy and procedure manuals for member companies.
There’s so much more, including what advice our guests would give their 20-year-old selves, favorite reads (including The Four Obsessions of an Extraordinary Executive, a find from QSC), and goals for the year (to include winning another college football championship!). You’ll find inspiration in every minute … and even see a surprise guest!
