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!
We had a good turn out for the last meeting. There where no inspectors present due to Veterans day but it was still a very productive meeting. Doreen Lockwood gave us some info about our charity Putnam Family and Community Services and what they do. We will be taking donations at the door of the Christmas party for them as well as Westchester taking donations for Blythdale Children's Hospital. There will not be a December meeting as we will be having our Christmas party at the Piato Grill in Yorktown. (the old Miraggio’s) That will start at 6:30pm and is free to all paid members and $75 for guests. The next regular meeting will be at 4 Brothers in Mahopac on 1-13-15 at 5:30 for board members and 7 sharp for the start of the meeting. We will be having another code discussion, an inside operations/tech discussion. If you have not been to a Putnam meeting lately you are defiantly missing a lot! We are looking forward to seeing some old and new faces at the next meeting, the more in attendance the more we all can learn!
Donations can be brought to the Holiday Dinner or mailed directly to:

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.
