During the week of March 13 Jarrod Ferruccio, CFO, and DJ Berger, NITC Southern Regional Representative, attended the Michigan Plumbing & Mechanical Contractors Association PHC/Mechanical Expo in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Both were impressed by the size of the event as well as the attendance. It was well organized, had great industry-related vendor participation, and had a steady flow of visitors throughout the day. The people that ran it were very appreciative of NITC’s participation and went above and beyond to accommodate us.
At the Expo they had the opportunity to meet with both Union and non-Union attendees to discuss everything from Code Development and Enforcement of Medical Gas System requirements to the administration of State testing. In attendance were many UA Local 85 Retirees, Journeyworkers and Apprentices that utilize NITC Certification.
NITC hopes to participate in the Expo when it is held again.
