The PHCC’s educational foundation has given its Chairman’s Award to the Copper Development Association.

The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors Association gave CDA the award at its 2015 annual conference in Hollywood, Florida.

Foundation Vice Chairman David Dugger called the association the world’s top resource on copper and copper alloy applications with a “100 percent commitment” to PHCC and the industry.

“Any time we need support, CDA is there,” he said, adding that it always provides financial assistance for contests and instructor workshops and training, donates products and is present for apprentice competitions.

“They are generous team players and a very important part of our PHCC family,” Dugger said. “We couldn’t be successful without them.”
