President's Message

As the new President of the PHCC of Long Island, I am determined to keep up the high standard of professionalism that my predecessors have instilled on this organization. We will continue to build awareness for the PHCC, as the more people know about us, the more we will grow.

One major way in which we will grow is by promoting, and building awareness of, the skilled trades. Ultimately, educators must help us in this effort by informing students of college alternatives and the great careers available in our industry. One of our Associate Members, Jerry Katz from Wallace Eannace, has done a great job in getting us involved with the Boy Scouts of America. Working with this fantastic organization has been the perfect platform to speak to young people and expose them to the opportunities that come from pursuing a career in the plumbing, heating and cooling industry. We hope that by exposing young people to the industry early on, it will spark an interest as they get older.

Boy Scouts Training

The PHCC of Long Island (PHCC LI) was first introduced to the Boy Scouts of Nassau County in the Spring of 2017. The members of our association met thousands of young scouts and their parents at the 100th Anniversary Jamboree at Eisenhower Park and were able to demonstrate basic plumbing skills. The success of that day was well documented and set the stage for future activities with the scouts.

Jerry Katz, Board Member of the Theodore Roosevelt Council of Boy Scouts, as well as the PHCC LI, came up with a unique idea last fall. Traditionally, the Boy Scouts travel to their summer camp for a full week where they participate in many scouting activities including earning merit badges. Jerry explained that one of the merit badges offered at camp was a plumbing merit badge. It didn't take long for several members to enlist and the project took off. We were able to get the plumbers of PHCC LI to travel upstate to Livingston Manor to work with the scouts on plumbing skills and theories.

PHCC of Long Island, N.Y.: Raising the Bar

Associations mean many different things to many different people. Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary defines an association as “an organization of persons having a common interest.” Sorry, Merriam-Webster, but that doesn’t do it justice. Your definition is incomplete.
