This year has certainly challenged us all. COVID-19 has forced us all to change and adapt, to re-invent the way we provide services and resources and change the way we learn. Thanks to your MCAA Officers, Board of Directors and dedicated national staff, MCAA has not skipped a beat. Considering the safety of MCAA members, the association and our industry partners, it was decided that the MCAA 2021 Annual Convention will be cancelled due to the impacts of COVID-19. Instead, MCAA will hold the first MCAA Virtual Education Conference.

Make sure your service techs have the up-to-date safety training they need to protect themselves from arc flash and electrical shock hazards while working on equipment pushing 480 volts or less. The session covers all applicable OSHA requirements, NFPA 70E provisions, best practices, and real-world accident information.

MCAA’s Virtual Trade Show connects our contractor members with the members of MCAA’s Manufacturer/Supplier Council.

PCA’s second module in their Virtual Education Series on Plumbing Service focuses on the integration of dispatch and service software with their accounting system. The series is a seven-module case study with weekly sessions focusing on JPG Plumbing & Mechanical Services. Each module includes a video, an online discussion and handouts. Register today.

Thanks to Sloan’s integrated lineup of touch-free commercial plumbing systems, Chicago’s new Fulton East office and retail building is the nation’s first office building designed specifically to address employee health, safety, and wellness in the post-COVID-19 environment.

MCAA/MSCA is pleased to announce a new set of Tailgate Safety Talks on refrigerant safety. Recent changes to ASHRAE’s refrigerant Safety Group Classification System, along with toxicity and flammability characteristics associated with some of the newer refrigerants, prompted production of the new resource.

MCAA/MSCA is pleased to announce the release of a new refrigerant safety training resource for members. The resource, which includes a PowerPoint safety training presentation and accompanying notes for the instructors will help you bring your service technicians and other affected workers up to speed on the most current ASHRAE refrigerant designations and safety classifications, new and existing refrigerant safety concerns, toxicity and flammability protective measures, and much more.

Guy’s Mechanical Systems discovered that the Viega MegaPress Press-In Branch Connector saved them time by reducing the steps for installation in the process of remodeling a 20-story high-rise in downtown Pittsburgh. Renovating the aged building—constructed in 1902—into a hotel has been a complicated process, and Foreman Josh Mitchell said MegaPress has made it simpler. Viega is an MCAA benefactor sponsor.

MCAA has combined several approaches and techniques to create the PCA Virtual Education Series hosted by JPG Plumbing & Mechanical Service, Inc. This year, MCAA attendees will be able to virtually walk through JPG Plumbing & Mechanical Service’s operations through seven workstations as representatives speak about the various aspects. You can still register–don’t miss out!

Please join BNY Mellon on Tuesday, September 22, or Thursday, September 24, at 3:00pm ET for a discussion of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) recent proposed rule, “Fiduciary Duties Regarding Proxy Voting and Shareholder Rights.” The proposed rule, filed on September 4, 2020, outlines a proxy voting framework for Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) governed plans that has far reaching implications on how fiduciaries allocate governance resources and what constitutes economic benefits for plan participants.

Construction owners, general contractors and subcontractors are increasingly using master agreements to become more efficient in their contract negotiations. The American Bar Association (ABA) and ConsensusDocs will discuss practical ways to maximize the advantages and avoid potential traps in using master agreements in a coordinated manner during a September 24 webinar from 1:00-2:30 PM ET. Registration is open to all, with special savings for those who are ConsensusDocs subscribers.

MCAA will be hosting live sessions each week, available to all students, faculty advisors and MCAA members, beginning September 15 through November. The program is aimed to help give the next generation of mechanical contracting leaders a deeper understanding of the industry and the ins and outs of creating a construction bid. Each session will be taught by MCAA industry leaders and navigate students through the competition project with online instructional sessions focused on components of a real-world contracting bid.

September 23 - November 4, 2020

John Geiling, President and Marc Gluck, Vice President will join MCAA’s Director of Innovative Technologies, Sean McGuire to provide an overview of JPG Plumbing’s operation, markets, training and service scope.  This webinar will also touch on each individual segment in the series to allow attendees to understand what they will be sharing in upcoming dates.  John Geiling and Marc Gluck will also address what plumbing service is and their corporate philosophy as it relates to new construction.
