The SDAPHCC and the NAPHCC serve as the voice of the pluming, heating, and cooling industry. Both organizations advocate for legislation and regulation that are favorable to the members and the industry.
The SDAPHCC works on members' behalf to protect their interests at the State Capitol. We work with our state lobbyist to actively monitor and lobby bills that are relevant to the industry and impact members' businesses.
During the 2021 Legislative Session, the SDAPHCC actively opposed House Bill 1010 which would have changed how plumbing licenses renew. The association was successful in defeating the bill.

By coming together as an organization, our members have a stronger voice at the Capitol and are better able to influence regulations that affect their businesses and industry.

Through our affiliate with the National Association of Pluming, Heating and Cooling Contractors, we are able to exert influence on national legislation and regulations that affect our industry. NAPHCC has a Government Relations Department that works directly with members of Congress and the White House on critical issues in Washington, DC. Members can follow the PHCC Advocate newsletter to stay informed of legislative developments.
Each May, members from across the US gather in Washington, DC for the annual Legislative Conference. During the conference, attendees meet with their Senators and Representatives and inform them of the current issues affecting the p-h-c industry.
Unfortunately, the 2020 Legislative Conference was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. Despite the cancellation, PHCC staff continue to monitor legislation and keep lines of communication open with policymakers on Capitol Hill to advocate for all PHCC members.
The PHCC 2021 Legislative Conference will be held virtually on July 15 & 16.
