Summer 2016

President's Message

Greetings to all of our members and associates. I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer! It seems like we are traveling at warp speed, both in business and with family. We all wish we could slow down the pace....... But in Business that's not the case.
This summer I've been able to do a fair amount of reading, including reading Facebook posts by PHCC members from across the country. It is great to see what other local organizations are doing to improve their associations. While browsing, I came across something a friend of mine wrote about being in business.
"Just because we own a business some people think how easy it is for us. What many don't realize is the sacrifices that we make each and every day to keep our employees happy and paid, and the price we pay to keep our customers happy. Usually we do an outstanding job but sometimes we fail, but never is it intentional or mean spired. Sometimes we don't get a paycheck and most times we work double or triple the hours of anyone else. We miss dinner, concerts, church events, and even holidays"
Being the owner of your own business is not for the faint of heart. It is important to stay true to your beliefs and values, which is something that everyone I know in PHCC follows. This organization has many great people whom we enjoy networking with and will continue to do so.
Our goals are to continue to expand our membership throughout Long Island and make sure we continue to be the most respected professional trade association. All I ask is that everyone associated with PHCC help in this task. Through numbers we gain strength.
I'm looking forward to learning new ways to run my business and new technical aspects of our trade. I am even more eager to get back to our meetings and to see all of my friends who choose to be the best they can be by bring PHCC Members.

Thank You,

Your Comrade in PHCC (of Long Island)
