Plumbing & HVAC Apprentice Contests


There are only a few slots left for HVAC apprentices to compete in the 3rd annual HVAC competition held in conjunction with PHCC CONNECT 2015, Sept. 30-Oct. 2, Hollywood, FLA.  There is no better way to boost the confidence of an apprentice who shows exceptional promise, than to let them demonstrate their skills on a national stage.  The costs for an apprentice to compete are minimal and the benefits to your company and to

their career are priceless.


The 2015 Plumbing & HVAC Apprentice Contests will offer the nation's top 15 HVAC apprentices and top 20 plumbing apprentices a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in an event that is exciting for everyone involved.  The contest will be held during the CONNECT 2015 event in Hollywood, FLA, For more information, email hall@naphcc.org.  

President's Letter 

Wow, this has been an incredible summer so far.  Record amounts of rainfall have significantly impacted many in our region.  Hopefully we will begin to see a bit of a drying trend and start to recover a bit from a very soggy spring and early summer. 

I'm so grateful for the opportunities provided to our organization during the summer months to continue to attend and display our PHCC information at our suppliers' local cookouts.  Thank you to all our faithful suppliers who have allowed us to attend these cookouts this season.  We appreciate the    

opportunity to represent the PHCC at these events.  Your involvement in the PHCC is much appreciated.  Please remember to support these fine organizations every chance you get.


Once again it is time to register your apprentices.  The fall semester begins soon.  If you have the need to do this or have questions, you can contact Mechanical Skills School directly at 317-352-1189.


Hope you have a wonderful summer.



Brian Lebo,

GIPHCC President

News of Note

Condolences to the family of Herbert Strong, Jr.

former president of Economy Plumbing Supply.  Herb passed away June 24, 2015.  Memorial contributions may be made to Second Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund, 7700 N. Meridian, Indpls. 46260.


Fite Plumbing has used a creative format to pay it forward.  Fite partnered with The Golden Star USA Foundation to raise scholarship funds for children of military families through the "Round Up..." program.  From July 15 - August 30, their service plumbers will ask clients to round up their bill to the nearest $5 increment.  Fite Plumbing will match each of these donations up to $500. 

When the promotion period ends, Fite Plumbing will cut a check to The Golden Star USA Foundation in support of its efforts in supporting military families in dealing with the stresses placed on them by deployments, combat, and daily military life.


Perhaps other companies can think of other creative methods to pay it forward to charities which are important to them and to their customers.  We are all in this together.   


Congratulations to P-M & Associates.
