The Putnam Country Contractors Association meets on a monthly basis to educate it's members, contractors, and guests about codes, safety, public relations and the best way to educate customers about the need to use licensed electrical contractor. The members meet for a social and organized educational meeting to network with vendors, electrical inspectors, and other contractors.
We are a group that pays dues to the organization for the betterment of our trade. We are not required to do this, we all do it to go above and beyond the bare minimum of what is required. We want to be the best in the area at what we do so we take time from our families to meet together to find ways to better ourself, our trade and the customers we serve. Our gold is education!

The entire meeting will be dedicated to a Con Ed representative and “Blue Book” info. Con Ed has asked that we give them some topics and or questions in advance so we will devote some time to developing a list at the next few meetings. We will also be voting on some changes to the membership by laws over the next few meetings. Lastly, we will be trying to put together a committee for a long term task of getting control of final certificates to the electrical contractors. All of the people in attendance to the last meeting have more details about those topics. The more in attendance the more each of us can get from the meetings.
We are looking forward to seeing some old and new faces at the meeting.
Please call or reply with any questions.
Joe Spirelli, President
Electricity can be dangerous if used improperly or just plain installed incorrectly. Electrical work represents not just a cost, for time and materials, but should also represent a long-term investment in safety. The Association’s contractor-members agree to deliver long-term safety and overall value to the best of their ability in all the work they do. To help contractors deliver safety and value, the Association regularly calls the attention of member-contractors to technical advances in methods and materials, and to updates in electrical safety codes.
