So, what? (You may be asking) While being a member is not rocket science, there are many benefits to you, the homeowner, by hiring a member of a trade organization.
First, trade associations hold their members accountable. Wouldn’t you like the peace of mind, should something go awry, that you have a national trade organization to go to? I do!
Second, the standards set by most trade organizations are higher than state regulations. This is true for the PDCA, as well. We quite enjoy being part of the best of the best!

Why re-invent the wheel by flying solo and learning by the school of hard knocks? We learn from experts and those with decades more experience and this sets us apart in our field.
