What’s the NCSG?

The National Chimney Sweep Guild’s mission is to inspire innovation, professionalism, and community among chimney and venting professionals through advocacy, industry-leading conferences and journalism for the success of our members and the growth of the chimney sweep industry.

We are the experts in the chimney industry and your best advocate.  The NCSG knows what it takes to build a successful chimney business, and they help and inspire us every step of the way.

“The National Chimney Sweep Guild (NCSG) is a 501 (c) (6) non-profit trade association existing to promote the success of its members by providing progressive services, encouraging professionalism and ethical accountability, and advancing the chimney and venting industry through public awareness of the trade.

Members in each of NCSG’s six regions elect board members to represent their geographical region. In addition to regional directors, the membership elects two At-Large Directors from among its voting members and one Supplier Representative from among its Supplier members. Additionally, two At-Large Directors are nominated by the Governance Committee and confirmed by the board.

NCSG participates in the Great American Woodstove Changeout and is a member of the European Federation of Chimney Sweeps (ESCHFOE), the Chimney Sweeps Association of Ireland (CSAI) and the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (HPBA). NCSG also actively participates in NFPA 211, NFPA 54, NFPA 31, and ICC committees.”
