I consistently attend events hosted by our local Chamber of Commerce! There are lots of benefits to being a chamber member: there are not really working events, continuing education courses, marketing opportunities, as well as philanthropic causes to support. Plus, I’ve drummed up a lot of new company support as a result of rubbing elbows with other company owners. Plus, I enjoy the events; I care about our city, as well as the suppliers that serve it! I expected the last chamber event to be a bit of a drag. They had assembled a panel of heating, ventilation as well as A/C professionals to discuss the state of the trade in our city, while I knew that going to chamber events such as this always behooves me (and our business), I couldn’t help but expect to be bored out of my damn mind. I mean, how long can a few people lay around talking about HVAC ducts? Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! The panel was made up of a diverse group of heating, ventilation as well as A/C tradespeople, as well as they started by asking all of the panelists what their favorite space of the task was. They almost all said that being a certified heating, ventilation as well as A/C company is a combination of acts of repair as well as niche mechanical skills. “You might guess that mapping out a duct plan in the attic of a 150-year-old house doesn’t sound akin to a superb time, but for me, it’s better than a night at the bar!” This one professional joked. They also discussed the future of the trade in our city; 1 servicewoman emphasized the importance of heating, ventilation as well as A/C education programs, then he attended 1 at the local community college, but said that he could have gotten a head start if there had been a heating as well as cooling class at his high school. I was surprised by how much I l received at the panel, as well as heating, ventilation as well as A/C professionals undoubtedly held our attention!
