The PPMCA is an association made up of Heating, Air-Conditioning and Plumbing contractors.
It also consists of associate members that include HVACR and Plumbing Suppliers, Equipment Rental Businesses, Product Representatives as well as the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department, Colorado Springs Utilities and Black Hills Energy Corporation. We greatly appreciate our Members and Associate Members and encourage all interested parties to complete our application for membership found on this website.
Why should you join PPMCA?
Here is the answer to this question:
Your membership dues to the PPMCA are important for our industry. The PPMCA communicates with the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department and our local Utilities as a common voice to help promote and enhance our industry and maintain a continued solid level of cooperation. There are over three hundred and fifty Commercial/Residential Mechanical Contractors listed on RBD’s website. We can strengthen our voice greatly when you join and effect changes more efficiently in the future. The three General Membership Breakfast Meetings each year are filled with important information relative to our profession and we always have great speakers covering topics from Energy and Equipment Rebate Programs to trending topics and code updates. Maty’s Good To Go Catering has made the breakfast you enjoy worth it alone! With a national shortage of 40,000 technicians today and projections for this number to double by the year 2020, education is important and finding quality technicians is paramount. We have just completed the Enhanced Mechanic IV Training Series for 2015 which was made possible by a grant from The Pikes Peak Regional Building Department. The PPMCA is working with our Regional Building Official and RBD’s operating boards to continue to receive funding and we are looking to develop a new program for 2016/2017 specifically geared to provide our Licensed Mechanic IV’s with in depth combustion analysis training. This could not have happened had there not been a PPMCA in place to manage the training. When you consider that it’s your permit money coming back to help train the Mechanics there is no down side realized. We have a great thing going here in El Paso County and other areas of the country are wishing they could duplicate it. The PPMCA has gained national attention for it’s commitment to CO Safety in a community by the addition of the Association as a sponsor of the Carbon Monoxide Safety Association, COSA. Our members and associate members have “given back” to the elderly in the community by participating in the annual Warm Wheels Campaign for over twenty years running! Leaving out all the past accomplishments, which in themselves are worth far more than $175.00 a year, this list should more than prove it is the best money you can spend to help promote the industry locally. If you are thinking about becoming a member, please contact Don Piano for more information or complete our Membership Application found on this site under “Members”.
