At ceremonies held during its 2007 national convention in Anaheim, Calif., the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors–National Association launched a year-long celebration of the organization’s 125th anniversary. The pinnacle of the celebration will take place April 28-May 2, 2008, during PHCC’s Leadership and Legislative Conference ’08, when the organization will sponsor National Plumbing Industry Week.

With the help of its state and local chapters, PHCC hopes to receive proclamations from the governors of many states, as well as from Congress. It will distribute public service announcements to the media, and provide publicity templates and ideas to local chapters so they can publicize the week in their own local markets.

In addition to hosting National Plumbing Industry Week, PHCC is also celebrating its anniversary by creating a special anniversary logo and theme, producing a DVD highlighting the organization’s long history of protecting the health and safety of the public, and conducting a year-long media campaign to targeted consumer, business and trade publications.
