Advocacy – SMACNA takes a strong leadership role on Capitol Hill. SMACNA National
puts all the resources needed to stay on top of industry issues in the nation’s capital,
including a legislative office just two blocks from the U.S. Senate. This effort is matched
by committed SMACNA members and it pays off in the direct impact our industry has with
legislators and regulators. SMACNA leaders and members know that competing interests
will step up to the plate and important battles will be lost without our experience,
knowledge and input.

Safety & Health – SMACNA’s Safety and Health Department develops safety programs,
publications, services and videos to assist members in establishing and managing effective
safety programs. SMACNA’s Safety and Health Department also communicates with
OSHA and other federal agencies on issues affecting members and provides members with
briefings on regulatory compliance issues.

Publications Store – Visit our online store to purchase SMACNA technical publications,
manuals and standards at member pricing.

SMACNA Subscriptions – Annual subscriptions to SMACNA’s 37 title technical library
are available via the cloud. Users can access content from anywhere – at home, in the
office, or in the field.

Technical Resources – Technical standards and manuals developed by SMACNA
members have worldwide acceptance by the construction and code community, as well as
local and national government agencies. ANSI, the American National Standards Institute,
has accredited SMACNA as a standards-setting organization. SMACNA standards and
manuals address all facets of the sheet metal and HVAC industry – including duct
construction and installation, indoor air quality, energy recovery, roofing and architectural
sheet metal, welding, and commissioning.

SMACNA Connect – There are many ways to connect with sheet metal contractors and
other industry professionals. Whether it’s through a local chapter, social media or through
one of our discussion groups, there is some place for you to ask questions, share business
concerns or just build your own personal network.
