HOUSTON - The first National HVACR Service Managers Forum, presented by the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) andThe NEWS, is just over a month and a half away, and it has already surpassed expectations for attendance, say the organizations. More than 170 service managers from 28 states (and two Canadian provinces) have signed up for this new educational event specifically created for the men and women who manage HVACR service departments.

The Forum will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Houston Downtown on Oct. 9 and 10, and the initial response has sold out the hotel. However, more rooms are available just a few blocks away at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel Houston Downtown. If reservations have not yet been made, call the Courtyard at 832-366-1600 and mention “Air Conditioning Contractors” for the special pricing of $149 per night.

At the National HVACR Service Managers Forum, attendees will learn from leading contractors and experts on topics such as:

• Structure Your Service Department for Profit

• The Perfect Service Call

• How to Stay Cool When Customers Get Hot

• Finances for Service Managers

• Taking Your Service Agreement Program to the Next Level

• Leading Effective Meetings and Training Programs

Plus, general sessions will explore ways to get great results and how to communicate with your team, bosses, and colleagues in order to succeed.

Space is limited and based on the response so far, the event may sell out in advance.
