WASHINGTON — Do you think your business will be affected by the decisions the 113th Congress will make this year? Job creation, tax increases and health care costs are just a few of the many issues that will be debated — and the impact on the p-h-c industry will be significant. Play a part in shaping the laws that your business must live by: register for the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors - National Association’s (PHCC) annual Legislative Conference — May 22-23, 2013, at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, Va.

Attendees of the Legislative Conference will hear from several impressive speakers. Kenneth T. Walsh, chief White House correspondent for U.S. News & World Report, will give the keynote address. Walsh has covered the presidency, presidential campaigns and national politics since Ronald Reagan’s era and makes regular appearances on ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and other major television and radio outlets.

Also, U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) has been invited to speak. Corker is the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He serves on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs and the Senate Special Committee on Aging.

In addition, over the course of two days, attendees will:

·        Receive a legislative briefing and information on issues impacting the p-h-c industry

·        Meet with members of Congress and staff

·        Attend a Congressional reception and breakfast on Capitol Hill

·        Meet the 113th Congress’s freshman class

·        Make valuable networking connections with PHCC members and on Capitol Hill

·        See the sights and scenes of Washington, D.C. on an optional bus tour

Now is the chance for contractors to get involved and help influence the laws that affect the industry. Hear from Members of Congress and key regulatory officials, meet with your own congressional representatives face-to-face, and convey the small business priorities that are most crucial to the success of your company.
