MC of NC and PHCC-NC combine


The North Carolina Plumbing and Mechanical Association was signed into existence, completing a year-long merger between two long-standing  trade associations.  After years of  consideration and unanimous approval from their memberships,  Mechanical Contractors of North Carolina (MC of NC) and Plumbing Heating Cooling Contractors of North Carolina (PHCC-NC)  combined their nearly 150 years of service to form a new association, NCPMA.

“We believe that completing this merger is  important because it is for the greater good of our industry,” said Charlie  Oxford, the outgoing President of PHCC-NC.   “Combining the efforts of PHCC-NC and MC of NC into one association will  allow us to better serve the industry.”

Rodney Pressley, outgoing  President of MC of NC echoed Oxford’s  feelings and looked towards the future.
“As members of MC of NC, we are very excited about this merger and look  forward to getting everyone involved to make NCPMA a great association,” said  Pressley.

Continuing with the  tradition of its predecessors, NCPMA will exist for the benefit of its members,  the enhancement of the cooling, heating and plumbing industries in the state  and the safety and well being of the citizens affected by these trades.  NCPMA will continue to provide numerous  professional development classes and opportunities, beginning with a  professional education series that began earlier this month.  These classes will satisfy continuing  education credits for license renewal and will be provided at locations  throughout the state.

“We are very excited about  what the future holds,” remarked Jim Pendergrass, Executive Director of
NCPMA.  “Together, the members and  leaders of NCPMA are ready to forge ahead and fulfill what is sure to be a promising future for our organization and our industries as a whole.”  Read More.
