The theme for our 58th Annual Convention and Trade Show grew out of the Spirit of Service demonstrated and felt during our event held in Providence last May. Between the awarding of 12 Scholarships, the Ladies of the Industry supporting a local charity, Care to Ride and the Clean-up and Rehab of the YMCA Sheppard Reservation Day Camp in Smithfield, RI – the convention committee thought why not put the shine on our Association that is dedicated to the service side of the heating industry.
Green + Education = $$
And that is what you gain by attending our annual event – education on the latest technologies, an opportunity to talk with the manufactures of that equipment and a chance to network with your peers. Those striving to be a well rounded energy professional – whether you are an owner, manager or technician - will benefit from all we have to offer.
We encourage anyone in the trades to attend - whether you are a plumber, HVAC mechanic, an oil heat professional, or an HVAC Instructor along with your students. We’ve even got special competitions
