Troy Winkel, Honest Plumber and Board member says, "The PHCC makes the world smaller for me. Instead of being in my own world, doing my own thing, I get to speak to others who have been in this town doing business for years and get their thoughts on issues that concern me."
Robert Flores, Interstate Plumbing and Board member says, "The PHCCNV is a reliable source for the latest developments in the code process and gives our industry a voice before any changes are adopted. There have been multiple benefits that have gone our way in the industry because of the powerful voice of the PHCC of Nevada."
Kim O'Neill, Barnett Pro Contractor Supplies and Board Member says, "I enjoy interacting with Members at meetings, luncheons and special events to make them aware that I not only want to sell them something, but I truly care about what is happening in Las Vegas and our industries. We have members that are passionate about what is happening in our industry! I like to look at the big picture as compared to my own little world! I feel we can make a difference if we are united."
Mark Larkin, Larkin Plumbing and PHCC NV President adds, "The Plumbing Heating and Cooling Contractors of Nevada has become one of the largest and most active merit shop trade groups in the state, with over 60 members. It members include many residential and commercial new construction contractors, as well as many of the small and large service contractors, in the area. The PHCCNV is a nonprofit organization that is committed to serving and PROTECTING ITS MEMBERS RIGHTS. When it comes to State and Federal Laws that affect the small, medium and large specialty contractors and contractor related businesses in Nevada, you can have a voice in Carson City or the local Municipalities, by the way of the PHCCNV. The PHCCNV has built up a relationship and gets respect from the decision makers in Carson City, by participating and helping fund, the Nevada Subcontractors Coalition. A group of politically savvy contractors and lobbyists that are your eyes and ears in Carson City, your very own watchdogs. They will make you aware of harmful legislation and protect your interests as a specialty contractor when it comes to new laws and reforms. Remember, if you want to go into business, get into politics. If there is something that bothers you whether it is locally or statewide you have someone to call and make you aware of it. You may want to make sure that it isn't only you that is having that problem. Maybe someone else is going through the same hassle as you and you want to know what they are doing about it. They may be able to suggest a remedy for your problem."
