INDIANAPOLIS - The Duct Cleaners Network (DCN) hosted its fifth annual conference in Indianapolis, with a focus on business networking between high quality service and equipment providers coupled with peer-to-peer hands-on training.

Over 45 business owners attended the full conference. These sessions included topics such as turning a business into a machine, confined space entry, creating employee manuals, and successful marketing in a down economy. Day two of the conference was held onsite at Mite-E-Ducts/Control Tech of Zionsville, Ind. At the campus, Alan and Clay Winters facilitated several hands-on demonstrations including UV light installation and service, zoning techniques, and encapsulation. Attendees were also treated to a lively and interactive keynote presentation by Toni Cooper.

DCN has already announced plans to hold the sixth annual event at the same location in August 2009. Exact dates will be announced shortly. The DCN’s mission remains promoting interaction among its members at reasonable costs. All events are held at family-friendly properties. In addition to the networking and educational programs, some members even use the network to cooperatively participate in large projects together. To further support networking efforts, DCN hosts an online discussion board.
