The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors National Association (PHCC) tackled their business challenges equipped with new tools and strategies to help them run their companies more effectively in three separate conferences.
At their respective winter conferences, the PHCC Enhanced Service Groups, Quality Service Contractors (QSC), Union-Affiliated Contractors (UAC) and Construction Contractors' Alliance (CCA), offered segments opportunities to share best practices with fellow contractors and learn the latest approaches and technologies from expert speakers.
QSC Power Meeting
In February, QSC took its Power Meeting to Anaheim, California, where contractors in the service and repair industry got a mix of education and networking opportunities – as well as exclusive coaching sessions – to help them confront their toughest business challenges, improve operations and grow their profits.
UAC Unity Meeting
Addressing the hottest topics among signatory contractors, UAC's Unity Meeting that occurred in late February and early March in Las Vegas, Nevada, proved the benefit of cultivating strong working relationships among the industry's labor and business leaders. Attendees tuned into sessions on innovative and integrated technology for planning, design and construction of buildings; the "how's and why's" of market share studies; legal tips for UAC contractors; service contracting management and growth; and UA National Agreements.
Members in new construction convened in Park City, Utah, in early March for a packed program on business solutions, a contractor spotlight, commercial and residential breakout sessions, and valuable roundtable discussions where attendees shared challenges and best practices in the new construction arena.
“The real-life best practices and lessons learned provided at these events certainly reinforces the benefit of getting involved in these Enhanced Service Groups,” said PHCC—National Association President Patrick Wallner. “Face-to-face contact with peers and experts in these specialized segments, as well as market insights – and solutions – to the specific challenges these groups face, goes a long way in extending the value of PHCC for our members.”
