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 another great turn out, I was happy to see everyone at the meeting. We cover a lot of topics, Habitat for Humanity informed us of the job progress, and that they are still choosing a family for the home. Matt Wormer the Lawyer introduced himself to the members and gave a quick presentation on contracts and legal issues to protect ourselves.
Danfoss representatives did an excellent presentation on snow melt and pipe protection. Ed Odell from NYSEIS was presenting as well, he followed thru with the Code regarding the snow melt and pipe heating, and answered any questions regarding code.
Next month our meeting will be on Tuesday November 10th, our presenter will be Panduit.
Please call or reply with any questions.
Tony Cangianni, 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.
