AUSTIN, Texas — A record-breaking 1,640 individuals attended Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International’s (HARDI’s) 2018 Annual Conference in Austin, Texas. The Legacy-themed event honored those who paved the pathway to today’s success and celebrated those who are establishing their own legacies in the future.
“Legacy — what does that word really mean?” asked Talbot Gee, CEO, HARDI, during the event’s opening ceremonies. “For us, we want to make sure we honor, understand, and learn from those who have gotten us this far. We also need to make sure we recognize the amazing talent that we have coming up through this organization. This is their time; they’re starting to define their legacies and establish how they’re going to lead this industry. We all have to work together to ensure our next generation will be even bigger than the legacy builders of yesterday.”
