Public Relations

Throughout the year, the Board members and staff participate in a number of events across the state which allow consumers and contractors to learn more about the Board's activities and discuss matters of interest. 

These events include:
- 'home shows' which are open to the general public

All events are informal and casual, and are designed to encourage:
- access to Board members and staff members
- education regarding consumer awareness

- current industry trends and issues of concern
- open communication between all parties attending

In addition, Board representatives also attend and/or speak at many smaller functions, including the following:
- plumbing and mechanical inspector association conferences, seminars and workshops
