The Air Conditioning Contractors of America is holding a service forum and roundtable in Louisiana this October.

The ACCA is combining two of its most popular events: the National HVACR Service Managers Forum and Commercial Contracting Roundtable.  

The joint events will be held Oct. 1-2 at the Hilton Riverside hotel in New Orleans.

Air Conditioning Contractors of America officials say the first forum, held in 2008, sold out far in advance. This year’s forum includes an expanded number of workshops.

"Service managers are key to contracting success, and the ones who attend the Service Managers Forum are the ones who will make a big difference for the companies they work for," said Paul T. Stalknecht, the ACCA’s president and CEO. "Of course, we found last year that the forum actually drew a wide audience - not just service managers, but company owners, operation managers, and other service and installation personnel. Some companies sent their whole service team, and found the experience invaluable."

Full program details are available here.

This year’s roundtable, the sixth held by the association, will include a focus on energy services, green retrofitting, building information modeling and “bundling” products and service.
