Join Me in Mexico for HRAI’s 50th!

In October, HRAI will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as an organization and I would personally like to encourage all members to attend this landmark meeting. It has been 50 years since two Canadian industry groups, the National Warm Air Association and the Canadian Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Association merged to form HRAI and create an umbrella organization that represented the entire industry.

This year’s AGM has a different “flare” to it, in that the program is an equal mix of informative business sessions and recreational time to enjoy the pleasures of the Paradisus resort in Playa Del Carmen. The business sessions will provide you with information on a wide range of “burning issues” in our industry, which include Green Building solutions, safety measures for new A2L refrigerants, HVACR job creation and the vision for energy efficiency in Canada, considering the move towards a low carbon economy.

Recreational opportunities abound at Paradisus, so there will be plenty to choose from on your afternoons at the resort. Fun for both young and old, so if you can, bring the family. They’ll love it!

There will also be lots of networking events including: golf, a plethora of onsite activities and nightly entertainment. On the final night, I have been told the association will be celebrating my 35-year career at HRAI. This both interests and “scares” me! Don’t miss this opportunity to see what the Board has in store for me.

This is HRAI‘s big year. Help celebrate 50 years of achievements for the Canadian HVACR Industry. Join me in October at the Paradisus resort in Mexico!

I look forward to seeing you.
