RSES to Co-locate Annual Conference with PHCC CONNECT 2018

December 12th, 2017

Rolling Meadows, Ill. (Oct. 19, 2017) – RSES is pleased to announce it will co-locate its 2018 Annual Conference with The Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors—National Association (PHCC) CONNECT 2018 in Albuquerque, NM , Oct. 9­-12, 2018.


 “We are extremely excited to be partnering with PHCC for our annual conference in 2018,” said RSES Executive Vice President Lori Schiavo. “Bringing HVACR professionals together in pursuit of education and training—be it on the business-management end or the hands-on spec, install and repair end of the spectrum—is what needs to be happening on so many levels for the sake of this great industry.”


Building on the success of CONNECT 2017, held earlier this month in Milwaukee, WI, PHCC is eager to share select events with RSES at next year’s conference, bringing both business owners and technicians together for mutual education and collaboration.


“As RSES and PHCC partner on this conference I believe we will see the positive effects of banding together,” Schiavo said. “As we take joint responsibility for the quality and future of the HVACR industry, I believe there may be more opportunities arising from this partnership. I am proud to join forces with PHCC and share this like-minded vision.”


“PHCC tremendously values partnerships like this as we continue to strengthen the education and networking power of our association for our member contractors, including those involved in HVAC work,” says PHCC President Laurie Crigler. “With workforce development a top priority, the timing of this collaboration couldn’t be better, with loads of potential for both groups to learn from each other on how to recruit and retain the next generation.”


Adds PHCC EVP Michael Copp: “Undoubtedly, the expanded scope of CONNECT 2018 will benefit both PHCC and RSES. We look forward to working with RSES to develop a schedule that provides time for both groups to focus on their specific programming, while also building in opportunities for joint events, including the Product & Technology Showcase.”
